to the big girl...


today is a big day
you have counted
down the days
for over a month now
and here it is
you are 7 today!
but you are more
than your number
of years on earth:

you are me...
strong willed
a dreamer
a pretender
a reader

you are your dad...
smart
a perfectionist
an analyzer
a go-getter

but mostly, you are you!
you light up the room
with your toothy smile
and infectious laughter
you are a doting big sister
you are an aspiring artist
with a sharp eye for detail
you are an attentive student
greedily absorbing new ideas
you are an articulate orator
who loves her gift of gab

you are an amazing
daughter
granddaughter
cousin
friend

you are you...and we love you!
