Chloe's ten!

It's hard to believe that ten years ago I was starting out on this wild and crazy ride that is motherhood. The birth of a child is always a miracle, but when Chloe was born the world changed. She's really something special. That spark that makes us each different and unique is a raging inferno in her. Chloe seems to have been born with all the knowledge in the world stuffed into her brain. You don't teach her things, you teach her to connect what she already knows. I'd like to say that it's just my maternal pride that makes me say these things, but anyone who knows Chloe knows exactly what I mean. I'm constantly humbled that she was entrusted to me; most of the time I don't know what the heck to do with her!
Seeing her growing up and maturing makes me a little sad. It's kind of like putting on sunglasses; I know the fire is still there, it's just not quite as bright. Oh well.

Happy Birthday, Chloe! You're one of a kind!

It's so hard to believe that your baby is TEN! She is growing up to be such a beautiful young lady. I love to see the pix that you post of her & her the stories that you tell me. She is so strong too. (I know, sometimes that one is a little difficult!) Please tell Chloe that Aunt Sue, Uncle Gene, Nikolas & Hanae hope that this is a bright & wonderful year for her.

Looks like she had a great b-day. Sorry we haven't gotten to see her yet maybe this week. She does look older though. Put your hand on her head so she'll stop growing before we get up there to see her.

Love ya,
