Sweet Girl of Mine
First of all I wouldn't have survived these past few years without you my sweet. You have helped me change diapers, make breakfast, clean rooms, entertain little ones, and you have done it well.
You have a natural way with children and we are sincerely blessed to have had you first. You take care not only of your siblings but any small one you are around.
Let's talk about how awesome you are in school. Julia you are one of the brightest most inquisitive child I know. As a classroom teacher I have been around many, many children your age, and if you were in my class you probably would have had a word limit because you ask SO many questions!! But darling, that's so good. You want to learn. Even if it drives me absolutely bonkers most times your questions are truly good questions. I especially adore your questions about the trinity and Jesus. There is so much you want to figure out. You remind me of your dad in that way. You have that tender faith of a child and yet that curious, inquisitive mind of a true apologetic. Let's just say, Daddy will have to continue to answer some of those deep spiritual questions you have!
Well, Jules, this week is here! This time it is all about you! (you know how mommy always says, the world doesn't revolve around you and to put others first) Well, this week we get to spoil you, and bless you, and remind you how wonderful you are and how blessed we are that God put you in our family. There are so many great ways you have put a smile to all of our faces. Now, mommy does NOT have favorites, but, like I have been telling you when you ask, I don't love you anymore than the other kids, but I have loved you the longest. You are my firstborn, my sweet girl, my blessing, and I am so happy I am your Mom!
Happy Birthday, my sweet! I am so glad you were born.
