Happy birthday sweet, sweet Georgia! You are seven years old today!
Last night, before we put you and your sister to bed, mommy and I remembered the day — the week — you were born. I can still see it all in my mind like it was yesterday.
Georgia, you are such a bright and joyful girl.
You love going to museums, whether the art museum, the dinosaur museum, or the real astronauts (your favorite).
You love reading and you love using fancy words and figures of speech (you have a way with words, I always tell you).
You love drawing and you love art projects.
You love your little dog Rusty (and he loves you, too).
You love going to school and you love playing violin. This week you earned another badge for another song you learned to play. Watching you enjoy music and play music has been such a joy for mommy and me.
And sweet, sweet Georgia Ann, you love your family.
Just the other day, mommy dropped one of her favorite mixing bowls and it broke into a thousand pieces.
“Oh no!” she cried, “I loved that bowl!”
You told her you would try to put it back together for her. But when she explained that it wouldn’t work, you still wanted to help.
“What can I do to make you feel better, mommy?” you asked. And that was all it took.
Georgia, we all love you so much — mommy, Lila Jane, and me. We’re so happy it’s your birthday and we are looking forward to celebrating with you today and this weekend when your grandparents and cousins will come in for your party.
Happy birthday, sweet girl. You bring so much joy into the world.
I love you…
