Emaree (aka squeeky) officially turns the big 8 years old today! Doesn't seem like that long ago I spent a long sweltering summer pregnant (I remember I had the best tan that summer from basically living in the swimming pool). We have been so busy with company and with my brother's wedding last week that this day has really crept up on us. Emi's big plan today is to go to Build-a-Bear after school and then to have a family dinner...and on Saturday she'll celebrate with a few friends. She's also looking forward to her baptism next month...yeah!!!
Emi's grown up so fast...and what a sweet girl. She's probably the most observant of any of my children -- she can practically tell when I change my color of lipstick. She loves to help her mom and dad, in fact, her dad has always calls her "daddy's bestest princess helper" because she's the most willing of all the kids to jump in and do whatever she can to help out with anything. Emi adores her friends and family, loves to swim (dive), draw, and read. We love you Emi, Happy Birthday!
