Happy B-Day Anna Bugs!

9 lb 3 oz. 23 inches long. 6 years ago today, this little...rather large...bundle of joy changed my life forever. I never knew what pure love was until she came into my life. I never knew what a challenge was until she turned 2 nor the true meaning of strong willed. I never knew just how much patience one soul could muster up inside :).

Anna Lynn, I have loved watching you grow up, baby girl. It's like watching myself grow up all over again. Although it's a bit sad realizing that 6 years FLEW by, I can't wait to continue watching you grow and experience all this life has to offer. And just as much, all that YOU have to offer life. You are an amazing spirit. Smart. Sometimes a little too smart. Yet, you have that "large zest for life" that your teachers describe. Yea, you may have energy out the wazoo that's driving me to an early death, buy truth is, I wish I had it too. I love you more than you will ever know. Happy number 6, baby girl. You will ALWAYS be Mommy's baby matter how big you get.

So, pop it...lock it...put it in your pocket.
Pop it...lock it...and throw it away.

**fists together** We Cool.

BEAUTIFUL pictures!!! Sweet words.... :) Happy Birthday Anna!!! (Could she look any more like you???) ;)

Dee said...

Thanks Janet! No, she's pretty much her momma made over...other than the fact that she'll probably be 6 foot tall and naturally skinny. Makes me sick :)

She is beautiful and you are right- she'll probably never have to worry about her weight - she'll be tall and skinny! Beautiful pictures, as always.
