Our Baby Girl is 7!!!!!

Camryn's birthday was last week, and I can't help but feel a little bit sad as I look over her pictures as a baby girl. She is 7. Officially a girl. Not a baby, not a toddler, not a preschooler. A little girl. My little girl. I remember thinking when she was a baby, "I wonder what she will be like when she's 2, 5, 7?" I think back to then, and I think that I never would have imagined her being as beautiful, smart, witty, caring, silly, thoughtful, and sassy as she is now. This tiny little thing has grown before our very eyes into a beautiful and big girl. Camryn is turning into a wonderful person, and I feel so fortunate to be her mom- to be able to see her discoveries, her sorrows, her joys, and her accomplishments. I am so proud to not only call her my daughter, but one of my best companions. I can't even begin to describe how lucky I am every day to have her.

Happy Birthday Camryn Nicole!!!
Mommy & Daddy love you with our whole hearts...
