Today, November 7, you become thirteen years old. Now you are officially a teenager. This is an important milestone on the way to independence. I hope you have a wonderful birthday and a superfragilisticexpealidocious life.
Sometimes dreams do come true and my dream became a reality when you were born, Sarah. I was not present for your birth because I was home watching your big sister, Rachel. But I got to the hospital later that day to see my new adorable granddaughter. And you slept through the whole thing.
Mommy had your picture taken in the dress I had given to her for her girls.
You were such a good baby and always ready with that big smile.
You were so curious about everything and the dog endured your fingers that were intent on his eyes.
You loved Grandma's swimming pool.
And before I knew what happened you were a school girl, growing up so fast before my eyes.
The birthdays just started flying by.
Before I knew what happened you had become a lovely young lady.
It has been so much fun watching you grow up. I am looking forward to the next milestone when you change from a teenager into an adult. I know you will be a very special one and everyone who meets you will love you instantaneously, just as I do.
