Happy Birthday!!

Happy Birthday Emma!!

Today is my youngest daughter Emma's 13th Birthday!! I can't believe how fast the time goes. I vividly remember driving extremely fast to the hospital on a really early Sunday morning. I was already in transitional labor and was terrified that she was going to pop out in the car. Well, she waited till we got to the hospital but couldn't wait for the doctor. Then, God named my dear sweetie, we hadn't picked out a name, we just couldn't decided, neither of us had any favorites.
Then, poof!!! Her name just came to me in my state of delirium. She truly is a gift. I love all of my children equally, and relish all of their difference. But, miss Emma, wow!! She's too good. We have to try and get her mad sometimes, just so we know she can get mad. She used to lay on the ground completely still and quiet when she was throwing a fit!! Yeah, a fit!! That was her way of throwing a fit!! I sometimes worry that she is too nice. But, truly, the world needs more Emma's.
So, Happy Birthday sweetie. You rock!!
