Cherie's 10th Birthday!

I can't believe how quickly time has flown. It seems like just yesterday when I was huge and bloated and totally uncomfortable, still just over a week away from the day my third baby was due to be born.  I remember waking up in the middle of the night thinking "oh crap--this just might be it" and before I could even fully register that I was about to have this baby---she was here, after barely 3 hours of labor!

And when I held that little angel in my arms, I thought "this is the most beautiful baby ever to be born. EVER." You couldn't convince me otherwise.  She was so tiny and so perfect, my perfect Little Bird.

Yet somehow...ten years have passed.  I can hardly believe it.

Cherie-- you are still my perfect little angel and I love you so much.  You have brought so much joy....and energy and love to our family. You've completed all of us.  We are all so proud of the crazy young girl you are. Never change!

HAPPY 10th BIRTHDAY RIE-RIE!!
