HAPPY BIRTHDAY, EMILIE!!
Today is Em's 11th birthday. Where does the time go? We were so excited the day she arrived. We had waited 2 years and 9 months for her arrival! (Another one of God's plans vs our plans...guess who won that one too???) She arrived at 10:13 am on July 23rd just one day before her actual due date! She was our only child to carry to the full 40 weeks, so weighing 6 lbs 14 oz we thought she was HUGE! She was only 18 inches long so she looked like a little butterball. Emilie was born with tons of energy which she still has!
For years her Daddy called her his miracle baby and so she would tell people...I am the miracle baby! She would follow her bubby abd sissy around all the time sneaking things away from them and then trying to sell them back (at age 2).
Emilie is very passionate about many things! She loves the outdoors and LOVES all animals. I can see her working in some job that allows her to be outside and with animals someday.
Her Daddy could not be here on her birthday but sent her a present and will be home on Saturday. We are taking her to the zoo on Sunday. Today we are going to Chuckie Cheese! YEAH-
Em- I hope you have a wonderful day! Thanks for being such a blessing to all of us!
Love, Mom and Dad
