I love you with every ounce of my being :) You are my first niece… and I can’t believe the amazingly smart, talented, and beaufiful young woman you’re growing into! I can remember being TERRIFIED to hold you for the first time in the hospital. You were so round and pink and perfect! Hopefully sooner than later I will be living closer to you… so I can come to your ball games and cheer as loud as your mama. Don’t you dare forget how special you are… and how much you are loved! Happy happy birthday (a month late)!
