And yet this is what she has become. Don't get me wrong, I am immensley proud of her. Bailey is smart (almost too much so), sweet, kind, and never misses the chance to tell the people that she loves that she cares about them. She is joyous and jubilent and very open with her emotions. If she is sad, you will want to cry with her (and I have many times) and if she is happy, you can't help but to smile when she grins at you with that full face grin that spreads across her face. It is my joy and my honor to be her mother.
Next week we will have her birthday party and celebrate for her with her friends but yesterday was just for her family where we got to have her precious attention for one evening. Happy Birthday my baby...both the one I see now and the one I remember in my head. We love you and are proud of who you have become and we look forward to watching to see where life will take you but know that it can never take you far from our hearts.
