Happy 10th Birthday, Kennedy!!!

It's here! It's here! Today is the big day, Kennedy! You are FINALLY 10! For months now you have been saying, "I'm really, really close to being 10." And as the days and weeks went by I watched you grow more and more excited as you planned your birthday party, talked about getting your military ID, and dreamed of being older and taller.

I have loved watching you grow this year, Kennedy, you have continued to surprise me and make me smile at every turn. I have loved watching you thrive at school, making new friends, soaring with your reading, and keeping everyone laughing constantly. I have loved watching you at dance, growing stronger physically and working so very hard at the thing you love more than just about anything else. I love watching your face light up when you know you're about to go on stage and perform... I hope you never lose that sparkle.

I know you are excited for this day because it means that you're older (and definitely wiser!), but don't grow up too fast, sweet girl. It's still okay to be little sometimes. It's still okay to play with your dolls sometimes, to play dress up sometimes, to color in your coloring books sometimes and to cuddle with your mom ALL the time! Remember that no matter how big you get, you'll always be my munchkin!

Happy Birthday my princess!

I love you a million, billion, trillion!

Mom

Lifting up prayers!
Psalms 57:1-2 Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me: for my soul trusteth in thee: yea, in the shadow of thy wings will I make my refuge, until these calamities be overpast. I will cry unto God most high; unto God that performeth all things for me.
