Eleven years ago today, I went into the hospital ready to have our second baby. I had no idea at the time how this sweet little bundle of pink would change our lives forever. From a cute, round faced, pig-tail haired little girl to a tall, slim, mature young lady... the years have gone by so fast.
You are an amazing girl and I can see God doing amazing things in your life. You have a heart to tell people about Jesus and I know He has great plans for you.
You are wonderful with children... both your own younger sisters, and the kids you babysit. You have a natural gift to play with them and I can see much of me in you when I was that age.
You can sing. I love listening to you praise God through your voice.
You are smart. Teaching you is a joy and it's so exciting to have those "lightbulb" moments together as a concept becomes clear to you!
You are creative. I've seen you design Halloween costumes, dresses and other items. You are crafty, artistic and talented. I can't wait to see how you put all those to use as you grow up even more.
You are not a morning person. Your birthday present this morning will tell that! *smile*
Joshua is your closest friend and yet a greatest pest at the same time.
Arianna models you. She adores you and watches everything you do. She wants to be just like you!
Sarah adores you. You are her "go-to" person when I'm busy in the kitchen or when I need to run out for a bit. You are her hero!

Your dad and I love you. We love watching you grow into a young woman and we are amazed at how far you've come in your life. I pray that God protects you in these fragile years and that He continues to show me how to be the best mom to you.
Today is your day Andrea. I wish you the happiest of all birthdays and that this year is filled to overflowing with fun, happiness and blessings!
