Today Addie is 11!!
As excited as she has been to have her birthday coming up, she also keeps repeating, "I don't want to be 11. I like being 10! I want to be 10 forever!" Then she adds, "Well, I want to be 16, actually." I remember ten being a very good and fun age. 16 was pretty cool, too.
So, my A+ girl, let me tell you what these last 11 years have meant to me:
Growth. Lots of growth! :-)
Together we have learned to roll with the punches, communicate, eating a little chocolate once in awhile ain't gonna hurt, smiling changes everything, and it's okay to cry.
You have brought into our lives a beautiful array of artwork unlike any other...both physically and in theory.
You are a ray of sunshine in our home.
Your nurturing spirit is evident in how you take care of your surroundings and your siblings. I hope you have those 15 children you so desire!!
Your attention to detail puts the rest of this family to shame!
We love you and hope you have a fabulous day!
