Happy Birthday Babydoll

You could call her a surprise, a fluke, whatever -- her Daddy and I call her a blessing. She is one of the most wonderful people I know.
And today she's 13!

She has not stopped talking since she arrived. She is all about softness -- in her clothing, in her speech, in her manner. She is chatty and outgoing and generous and happy. She wakes up most mornings smiling.

She gets over trouble in a wink. She pesters her older sisters, but only because she is so desperate to be included. Often, she'll come into the room with me and just sit and read -- because she "wants to be where the people are."

On her first birthday --

And totally 13 -- today!

Happy Birthday, Babydoll!
