Seven!

Lovely...never, every change.
Keep that breathless charm.
Won't you please arrange it?
'cause I love you...

Lately I've been thinking about time...mostly how fast it goes and how I'd like it to stop. now. at least for a little while. Grace is 7 today. The years have flown by at breakneck speed and my baby girl will soon be a first grader. I want to remember these days always...her beautiful smile, sweet voice, laugh and every little nuance of her personality. This has been a year of great change and growth for Grace with the arrival of William and starting Kindergarten. She's met all the changes in her life head on and I'm so proud of her! My wish is that this day and year is everything she hopes for!

Happy Birthday Sweet Pea!

Happy Birthday Sweet Grace!! I know just what you mean -- the time flies by! One of my favorite things about having a little girl is that she willingly wants to hold her hand -- melts my heart every time! Have a special and wonderful day!
