Happy 8th Birthday Kira Rose!!

8 years???? Where has the time gone? I still remember my baby girl's sweet cry as she spent the first week of her life in the neonatal ICU and how I was sobbing hysterically when we thought we were losing her to RSV or her first word bu--bles (emphasis on the separation of syllables) and now she is 8 years old. It has been amazing to watch her grow and mature as each new stage of development has come but sometimes I feel like time is moving way too quick. Oh, how I would love to keep her here where her innocence is sweet and the pain of this world has not affected her yet but I can't. I pray my amazing daughter as you grow and mature that God would keep you close to Him and you will serve Him with your whole heart for I have found there is NO greater joy!! My sweet girl, my love for you is unending and I am so honored that God chose me to be your mommy!!

Oh, she got the Sound of Music! One of my favorite movies ever! Tell her Eric and I have been to Salzburg and been to a lot of the places from the movie. I'll show her my photos when you guys get here! :-)
