Yesterday my sweet Amelia Mae turned 7. She went to bed on Saturday night saying, “I can’t believe when I wake up tomorrow I will be 7!!”. She was so excited for her big day, and it did not disappoint. She had a birthday party on Saturday with her friends, ate BBQ to her heart’s content last night and got to choose our movie for movie night – The Lorax. It was a perfect day for my perfectly sweet girl.
Oh how I love you. You are such a light in my life. You are my peacemaker, wanting to make everyone feel loved and included. When there is an argument between your siblings you try to make it better. However when you are included in the argument, you hold your ground – sometimes with screaming in the face of the perpetrator. You are strong, smart and oh so sassy. You just finished your first year of swim team and LOVED it!!! I think you surprised yourself with how good you are getting at swimming and what a natural you are. I know as you keep working you will get faster and better. You are determined to make things good and right for all around you.
You are quiet in new situations, aren’t a big talker in big crowds and really love your alone time. You are my introvert. You would rather spend the day coloring, drawing, and writing stories than in a crowd of people. Your favorite playmates are your siblings and you are (usually) so good to them. Elliott sure loves you because you are his little Mama.
You are my sweet girl, or as Meemaw says, “sugar with legs”. You make everyone around you happy and I am so very blessed to be your Mama.
Happy birthday sweetie!!
