Happy Birthday, Baby

Dear Emma,
      It's hard to believe that two years ago, at 5:07 pm, you were born. Weighing 8 pounds, 1 ounce, with lots of dark hair! I can't believe it. Now you're TWO! You probably weigh 25-27 pounds. You're on the tall side too. You still have LOTS of curly brown hair! Now, you have glasses. You are such a beautiful little one.

 We have had a fabulous two years, little girl. You are such a spirited child, full of opinions and a wee bit stubborn. I wonder where you get that............

I have had so much fun watching you grow this year. you are fiercely independent, your vocabulary has exploded beyond belief, and your personality is adorable.
