I find myself in awe that 9 years have gone by already.
Wow 9 years old! Boy have the years gone by fast. I try to cherish every moment of your life. Before you know it you'll be off to University, then having your own family. But I'm not going to think about that yet. To me you are still the big preemie and will always be one of my babies. You are a mature, sweet, compassionate, athletic, smart, beautiful, helpful (and the list could go on) daughter.
I can't wait to see how you continue to grow up over the next year.
I love you so much sweetie!
On a side note Taylor has never liked going to school but this year she is actually excited to go and is even super helpful getting Spence into school when he is upset.
