[Personal Post] - Today you turn seven...

[Personal Post] - Today you turn seven (7) 
February 4, 2016
by: KJ's Mom

KJ age 4

Today is bittersweet. 

I find myself sitting back often, more than usual, thinking...wondering...remembering all the time that seems to have past in a blink of an eye, a turn of a key, a flash right in front of me...only to find myself talking, laughing, loving this amazing girl, this bright, cheerful, sweet, amazing girl, who is not so little any longer.

KJ age 1
Seven years have past since the day you were born

I will never forget that day. 

I might tell you this story for the rest of my life, every birthday that passes, you will hear this story, the day the world gained an old soul, a truly special baby girl who's purpose in this world is nothing more than for greatness.

It was a cold morning. I was still working, early in the morning. I was getting packed up to head out for another day of work when lone behold, while reaching down to grab a beverage from beside the water decided to break. 

OK, so it was a moment of...what the heck just happened...and oh I guess I have to head to the hospital- but wait...after I eat this pop tart because lord knows it will be a while until I get to eat again. 

KJ age 3
Yes. I ate the pop tart. The whole thing before I waddled my way up the stairs to wake up your panicked father, who jumped up, grabbed his clothes, my bag and was on the move like the house was on fire. Where I was like, um, whoa, I have phone calls to make, duh! 

A few minutes later, we were on our way to the hospital, me feeling like I literally peed myself! It's all good though, no all. 

KJ age 2
Of course, it was more panic when we reached the hospital, and no, not from your Mom. I was calm, cool and pain free. I was ready. 

Then the room came, the waiting..who am I kidding, it really was not the time they induced to the time you came into the world was maybe a matter of a few hours...maybe! My guess is that you were just as ready! (Oh, and by the way...we were only at week 38- over achiever!)

Finally, at 1:58 p.m. on February 4, 2009, we welcomed our Baby Girl, KJ into the bright, new world. 

To say that I was amazed is an understatement. You were perfect. And from the moment Daddy held you, he was smitten!

KJ age 3
Grandparents gathered. It was your birthday after all. 

The day turned to night. You were such a wonderful newborn.  Night turned to day, still smooth sailing. This stayed throughout your first year. Smooth sailing! 

This was the day that my life changed, for the better. I had my purpose in this world. 

Sure, it's been seven years...a lot has changed (like adding sissy!) but I can speak for Dad and I, you have already made us so proud. You have a big heart, you love with all you have and you are becoming such a wonderful person.

KJ age 4

Happy 7th birthday sweetheart. 

You are our sweet girl and we love you with all of our hearts. 
We wish you the best birthday ever pumpkin! 


Mom, Dad and Kit Kat (Otee and Pork Chop too!)


My beautiful girl- age 6 (Jan. 2016)
