Today is Emma's 6th Birthday!! I say it every year, but I can never believe it when my girls are a year older. A little travel back in time:
2 weeks old
You havve grown and matured so much this year. Maybe more this year than any other year! You are really growing up and turning into such a beautiful little girl. You started kindergarten and are doing great. You are reading like crazy and loving to learn new words. You love to write and most of all, like to illustrate your writings. I think you might be an author and illustrator when you grow up. You also think you might like to do this or be a veterinarian. ;) You started taking dance this year and were not crazy about it, so we stopped that about 2 months into it. I finally found someone that taught art classes and you jumped at that opportunity. You go every Wednesday for an hour and get to do what you do best, create things. You are still super creative, very active, curious, and one of a kind. You love Brooklyn so much and consider her your best friend. You enjoy school most of the time, but when you don't want to go, you really don't want to go and make it hard on all of us. This breaks my heart, but I know going to school is best for you. You are learning so much and having fun with all your new friends. Ms. Norris is your teacher and truly a blessing from the Lord. She loves Jesus and she loves you. You are a rule follower. (something I didn't know until this year!) You are so curious about Jesus and knowing more about him. You ask great questions and are really starting to grasp Jesus and your need for Him. You are a great friend and really try hard to treat others like you would like to be treated.
Emma, thank you for being so sweet. I pray that you always stay sweet and remember that God made you exactly how he wanted you to be. I pray that you will be a girl that stands for what you believe in and make good choices. I feel so blessed that God has entrusted you to us on this Earth.
We Love You,
Mommy and Daddy
