My Sweet Emma Bean

Our lives changed forever 3 years ago today at 12:55 p.m. We were blessed with the most precious baby girl anyone could ever ask for. The last 3 years have gone by way to fast and I wish they would slow down.

Emma, we love you more then life itself and can't remember what life was like before you came along. I love your outgoing personality that you get from your daddy. I love the way you look just like I did when I was a little girl. I find myself staring at you when your playing and don't even realize it thinking how surreal it all is and how much I feel like I'm looking at old pictures of myself. I love your hands that look just like mine, along with your brown eyes. I love your lips because they are just like daddy's (although he swears they are just like mine). I love how spunky you are, how you know to be leary of strangers, how you want to be a baby again sometimes like your brother but then 5 minutes later you want to wear makeup, wear mommies clothes and paint your toenails. I love watching how much you've changed in the last year and how much you are coming out of your shell. I didn't want you to go to Mother's Day Out but I knew you needed too. I wanted to keep you in a bubble forever...and still do but know that's not possible! :) I can't even begin to wrap my mind around what I'll be saying 10 years from now. I hope you never have to go through pain, have your feelings hurt or have your heart broken. I hope you never forget or have to wonder how much you are truly loved and how much you mean to all of us. We love you so much Emma and while I don't want you to grow up too fast I know we'll enjoy every minute of watching you grow up. I love you all the way to the moon and back 10,000 times over! Or as you would say I love you little and big! Happy Birthday sweet baby girl!!!
