I can not believe that another year has come and gone since my oldest child was born. She is a great girl. Full of personality and spunk. She spends most of her free time doing gymnastics, which is nice since I am there with her. She officially LOVES Jack Sparrow. That is about all she got for her birthday, Jack Sparrow paraphernalia. She invited a few friends over for a pirate restaurant birthday party. After she drew and painted the awesome Black Pearl ship for the backdrop--she insisted on decorating her own cake. Oh... well I guess it was one less thing that I had to do. I am still trying to prepare myself for this stage of life--crushes on superstars, crushes on boys, going to the mall, independence and preteen attitudes. She is a great girl.
I love her dearly.
