Summer Eleven

See this little thing?

She’s 11 today.

I know, it’s hard to believe.  She’s so tiny.

Last year, she gladly spent her birthday evening at her brothers’ swim meet.  We told the boys they’d have to miss the meet so we could celebrate her birthday.  She insisted we go to the meet.  Happy to cheer on her brothers for hours on her special day – that’s just the kind of kid she is.

She is smart.  She is sweet.  She is determined.  She is kind.  

She is sassy.  She is impulsive.  She is dramatic.

She is strong.  She is brave.

She is compassionate.  She has a nurturing heart.  She may not always know what she wants, but she always knows what she doesn’t want.  She keeps us guessing.  She is full of surprises.  
She is not to be underestimated.

She is who she is.  And I couldn’t love her more for it.  

Happy birthday to my Little Meems.  You are a gift to me every day.
