"It's a Girl!"

What musical, long-awaited words those were! 

You were the first girl to join our family. 
After 4 boys in a row, a little female balance was long over due,
let me tell ya.

My first words to your grandma when we called to tell
her about you were
"Get out that credit card, grandma.  We're going shopping!"

Needless to say, your closet lacked for nothing frilly or fun to wear. 
 And you became my little model, allowing me to go absolutely wild
creating pretty dresses with ruffles, lace and bows. 
{[(oh, those hair bows were so fun!)]}
You quickly indoctrinated us into the world of little girls with all
its charm and drama.

Time has flown by so fast!

I think I blinked at some point
and
where there had been
a
little
girl,
was a young lady.

It kind of takes my breath away
just
how fast
all of those
milestones came and went. 
 And now,
all of the sudden,
you are ready to take a
huge step
and become
a
wife
to a wonderful young man
who gives you all the love
and
respect
you
deserve. 
Happy Birthday, Laura! 
Oh,
and sorry this is a day late.

Love,
Mom
