The Last Day........

Today is Elizabeth's last day of being 7.  She turns 8 tomorrow.

It feels like I just brought her home from the hospital a few weeks ago.  Actually, it's felt like that for the last several years - does that ever change?  I would imagine not.

She was born on a very hot sunny day.  She was mostly bald, except for some orange fuzz on her head.  I couldn't believe that I actually had a baby with red hair!  But mostly, I couldn't believe that I had a baby.

After 8 years - almost 3000 days - Elizabeth is still as sweet and nice and beautiful and kind and wonderful as she was the day she was born.

Happy Birthday Baby!

I love you.
