It has been a long and exhausting day full of: school, build -a-bear, luch with Daddy, and a Harry Potter party (more on that later) so I'll keep this post short and sweet, but I couldn't sleep without a Happy Birthday post for Cami. She has had quite the year and every day she continues to teach us, impress us, and inspire us...(don't get me wrong, she can INFURIATE us at times too, but we wont talk about that on her Birthday).
Every year since I was a little girl my mom would tell my sister and I the story of our birth on our Birthdays. Even though we heard it every year and knew it by heart, it never got old. I have continued this little tradition with my kids and tonight as Pat and I told Cami the story of her birth, I was flooded with the memory of love I felt when I first held her in my arms. I didn't think I could ever love anything more than I loved that tiny newborn. Boy was I ever wrong! My love for Cami has grown each year and I love her more now than ever. I knew very early on that she was special and I am so proud of this little girl and the amazing person she is. I am so incredibly honored to be her mother.
Here's to our spirited, fun-loving, inspiring, courageous 6 year old (KINDERGARTENER!!)!
We love you Cami!
