Happy 6th Birthday Mia!


Dearest SweetPea!

Oh my how time flies!  Just six short years ago we were blessed with the most adorable bundle of pink joy.  At 5 pounds 4 ounces, you let us know that you were here with a robust cry.  I can still hear that cry today and the smile it brought to my face when the doctor said, "it's a girl!"  Your daddy and I were so happy and so excited to have you in our family!

Since then, you've grown like a weed...you are now 43 inches tall and a mere 31 pounds.  Thankfully you keep growing taller, but no matter how many cookies we feed you, your weight just doesn't want to budge.  But, you are a healthy 31 pounds and we are grateful for that.

This year you started Kindergarten!  You  love school.  In fact, most days when you come home, you play teacher.  It is one of your favorite activities.  My favorite part is watching you read stories to Calvin, you hold the book in front of you facing outward (like a teacher would) and read the story to him...or make up a story that you feel it should be.

This year you gained all of your speech sounds and you graduated out of private speech therapy!  That is a miracle and we thank God for it.  You still get other therapies, but they are slowly lessening as you continue to make improvements in all areas.

This year you gained another brother and decided that you wanted to be the Mama.  Sometimes you tell us that Calvin is your baby and you are the Mama as you try to get him to do things that he doesn't want to do.  Calvin is your best friend.  From the moment you wake up to the moment you go to sleep, the two of you can be found playing silly games together.

We love you so much and are so blessed!  Praising God for you!

Love,
Always and Forever,
Mama, Daddy, Calvin & Asher
