Dear Addie Rose -
Today, my sweet Addikins, you turn seven. Super S-E-V-E-N.
I know I say this every single year – but where has the time gone? Sometimes I stop and have a hard time remembering you as a baby. All I see when I think of my “baby” – is this confident, talented and sweet girl who wakes me up every morning (always early and always around the same time she was born) with a “Good Morning, Mama. Can I make your coffee?”
You are so incredibly considerate, you want to help with everything. I rarely have to ask you twice to do anything, and usually I don’t have to ask at all – you just volunteer. You are all about executing and getting things done, whether it is your homework or trying to learn how to do a cartwheel. (Of course this is all when YOU want something done. You do tend to be a wee bit stubborn at times, still!)
And the best part is, you usually do all of your day with a smile, a giggle and a laugh.
You have a great sense of humor. You have this ability to make everyone around you happy, just by being around you. And your quick wit and boundless energy just make you all the more endearing.
You fill our every day with joy, laughter and love, Addison. And I just know that this year is going to be super. And I’m super blessed to get to share it with you.
Happy Birthday, my sweet 7-year old.
I love you,
