Six years ago today, we welcomed our newest baby girl to the family, Megan Grace.
Who would've ever been able to imagine all the joy she has brought us in 6 years?
She is so spunky and funny and sweet and smart and caring.
I really could go on about this little girl forever.
Did I mention that she is a major "Mommy's Girl"?
She wants to live with me forever.
That's right, the girl has plans.
She is never leaving home and will stay with me forever. :)
She is going to be an artist when she grows up.
At first she was going to sell her art on the street in front of our house but now she is going to have a shop (that I work in and her Daddy builds for her).
She is already worrying about who will buy her art.
She has even told me countless times that she has prayed and asked God for us to die at the same time but "I don't think he's gonna let us" she always adds.
I know, it sounds a little morbid, but you gotta know my Meggie.
She worries about things like that.
How could I have known in six (way too short) years what you would mean to me??
How very much I love you ?* How your smile lights up your entire face and your eyes sparkle?* How you can bring tears to my eyes in a heartbeat with the intense things you say sometimes?* How you are very insightful and worry about people's feelings and at the same time, can be honest to a fault?* How sometimes, baby girl, you don't have a filter on your little mouth and just say what comes to mind? I love you for being you.* How I love the way your sweet, soft little bony hands feel on my face when you rub it and tell me that I am "the best Mommy ever and how could you possibly love another Mommy better" for the millionth time?* How I love when you pray you always start with the same thing. "Dear God, Thank you for this day. (usually) thank you for this food, thank you for everything you made, please pray for everyone who's sick, please help the poor people, and please help no more trees to fall on anyone's houses?" Every time.* How you are so thoughtful and considerate and don't want us to spend money on you because you don't want us to be poor"?* How you worry about your sister when she has to go to the doctor?* How you scream because you are terrified of the cat even though you say you love it?* How you are too chicken to go to the bathroom by yourself (even though you're doing better)?* How you are too chicken to sleep by yourself (even though you are doing better...just another sign you are growing up)?* How you sing non stop until you you drive your sister crazy (isn't that the whole point)?* How you love to help fold laundry?* How you like to help me with the flowers in the yard?* How you love your chocolate milk at night?* How you so desperately love God and want to be a Christian?* How you are tough and most usually will not cry?* How you love to help me decorate?* How you can hop right out of bed and get dressed for school because you are so spunky?* How you love your bubblegum and Nacho's with Cheese?* How you could tell me repeatedly that you love me so much your heart could just explode?* How you would constantly tell me you love me so much your heart hurt?* How your favorite restaurant is Texas Roadhouse and you always order the seasoned rice?*
How could I possibly have known how much I would love you in 6 short years?
Happy Birthday My Sweet, Spunky 6 Year Old!I LOVE You!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
