Happy Birthday Banana

It is hard to believe my darling oldest daughter turns nine today. The wait for her arrival seemed interminable. We wanted to have a child for so long, then she decided not to show up until two and a half weeks past her due date. I thought the day would never arrive.

Now here we are nine years later and I am wondering where the time went. How can it be that the little girl who changed our lives forever is so far beyond first steps and first words? Can she already be this amazing girl who bewilders me with her virtue and understanding? I look at her and am so proud of the person she is becoming and, at the same time, I wonder how it is she is already nine!

Happy 9th Birthday Banana! I am so blessed to be your mom.
