Happy 8th Birthday Lauren


Happy 8th Birthday my dear Lauren Grace
Dear Lauren,
Every year just passes so quickly I sound like a broken record. It seems like not long ago you were coloring on walls and running down the isles at the store. I do miss those days sweet girl. You were my firecracker baby with spirit oh how that has been such a great advantage for you. I wish more of this world had your spunk but loving attitude the world would be a better place. Each year I get more insight on the person you are becoming. It is very rare to meet a child with such love, compassion and kindness. You think of others and are always willing to help without complaint. You will share without hesitation even the best snack or toy, I love this about you. Each day you are ready to have fun. You like math and science and love to do science experiments. I was not to creative on the old volcano explosion but you loved it and thanked me all day for showing you my trick. You are a good sister and already a little mama. You like to help your brothers and comfort them if they are sad. This year in school you had a great year!! Your teacher really loved you a lot and wished she had a class full of Lauren's. You are super smart Lauren you received all A's all year!! That is amazing!! Your favorite game is Apples To Apples and you play the grown up version with very little problems. You still love technology and Minecraft. You love to sing to songs on the radio and dance in the kitchen. You also love to help me cook dinner and clean the house. If I need a friend you are the best kind of friend. You are sweet and even a little shy at times but you know how to be a loyal friend. You love to have the neighbor friends over and love to be one of the big kids. This year you played softball and still love to swim. You are like a fish in the water. I love to swim with you because when I am under water and look over at you I always see a sweet face smiling in the water doing flips like a mermaid. Mom and Dad say a lot now how grown up you are and how easy going you are. You are not ungrateful and just last night while I was wrapping your gifts daddy said I think Lauren would be happy with any toy even dollar toys, you just love life. Your favorite animal is still a elephant and you love dogs too. Recently when I asked you what you wanted to be when you grow up you said a Zoo Keeper and I told you that I wanted to be one too when I was your age. You and I are so much a like as kids I can see so much of myself in you and with our story this is really special. You love animals, and My Little Pony, you are not afraid to play hard or get dirty. You like mysterious things like Sharks, and Bigfoot and love the weather. You are always up for challenge or game and love to laugh and have a good sense of humor. I could go on forever about my love for you but as I close I want you to know how much of a difference you have made in our lives in just eight short years. What a gift you bring with your generous trusting spirit and love of all people. I have never met a kid that forgives others so quickly and freely with no hesitation, you are love. Lauren mom and dad are so proud of you. Each day you make me a better person. I love you!! Mom
