Happy 6th, Emmy Grace!!!!

Emily Grace, How do I love thee, let me count the ways......
You are the pixie dust in my sometimes chaotic life.
You fill my days with unanticipated joy and smiles.
Your willingness to help and your love for others inspires me.
Your adventuresome spirit challenges and terrifies me.
You are truly the finishing touch on my wonderful collection of children!
I love you, sweet girl!!!
You can tell that I was delighted to finally be able to put all the bows and ruffles to good use!
At this age, she was climbing out on the back porch railing, stuffing frozen peas up her nose, and giving her mother heart failure about every day!
Someone else I know was very excited to finally have a daughter......

Is there anything more special than the gift of a very best friend?
