Exactly 7 years ago today you made me a mommy. How cool is that? And now look at you! You are this beautiful little girl... ok, girl... not so little anymore. You are everything I could have imagined in a daughter and more! I can't believe it's been 7 years!!
Today you will get your new bike. I know you're going to be excited. Next thing you know we'll be getting you a new car. That scares me! Don't play the radio too loud and don't drive with friends for at least 2 years ok? For today I'm going to worry about a helmet and knee pads.
Last night I was reading through some of your past birthday letters and in every single one I said that you are so compassionate... that your love for others humbles me. Every year you have shown what a sensitive, kind kid you are, and that shows what kind of adult you will be. It is one of the highest honors for someone to see how you care for others and appreciate it. I know I'm not the only one who sees it. My hope is that I will be able to write this in every birthday letter to you for the rest of my life.
As always, you have accomplished so much this year and I'm so proud. I'm even more proud because you are paving the way for your siblings. You are setting good examples and teaching them things in ways that sometimes I can't even comprehend. You amaze me, every day. I know I do not say it often enough.
Now as I sit here telling myself that just because you are getting older does not necessarily mean that I am getting older, I hear you waking up! Let's start the best day of the year!! (OK 1 of 5 maybe!) I love you my big 7 year old girl! I hope you have a fabulous, wonderful, great, super, perfect year!
