Birthday Wishes.

 It is hard to imagine this little girl...who wanted three cakes on her third birthday and blew out her candles wearing pink fairy wings and little else...turns fourteen today.  Our house is going to be very festive this afternoon and in this quiet moment, I just wanted to pause and say how grateful I am that Leif and I figured out how to keep Emma alive all those years ago.  We were perhaps the most clueless parents on the planet, but not so much so that we didn't realize we had been given the most precious of gifts. 
Our Amazing Emma Grace.

Watching Emma grow and mature over the years has been among the greatest joys of our life.  It is funny to think the little devil who refused to wear clothing will be all dolled up this evening for her eighth grade semi-formal dance...and yes, a handsome young man will be escorting her.  The passage of time is a funny thing.  As much as we wish time would slow down sometimes, we are equally excited to see the woman Emma will become in the future.
Emma, you have fascinated us during each phase of your life so far and we are honored to be on this journey with you.  Many beautiful birthday wishes to our beautiful birthday girl.  We love you and sincerely like you.
