Oh my. You are SEVEN! My first baby turned 7, I can hardly believe it!
I love having you in my life! You are such a good kid. I guess you are like daddy when he was little, you like to follow the rules and don't like to get in trouble. But you are also like me, we both like to write and do artistic and crafty things. In fact, that's what you spend the majority of your free time doing. You don't color, you write books. You tell stories. We have stacks and stacks of books that you have written and illustrated yourself - and you always tell such creative stories. You even make books for other people, you are so sweet and thoughtful.
One of my favorite things about you is that you like to make people laugh, and that you love to laugh too. Recently you are really into trying out new jokes and funny lines, it's hilarious. I also love that you are such a sweet and helpful big sister. Kyeson, who calls you T-t, totally adores you and loves to play with you, so I think that is pretty good evidence of how great of a big sister you are.You are quiet and sensitive, but strong and very brave too. If you decide you want to do something you will try and try until you make it happen, which I guess is also something you get from me. You love making good friends, and love having friends. You love to play with friends, but you also like to just be by yourself because you just like to have alone time. You are a wonderful person and I am so thankful to have you as my daughter.
For your birthday this year we went camping! Daddy and I tucked away all your presents into the van and so you were really surprised when you woke up on your birthday that you still got to have your presents even though we were camping. What is awesome about you is that we had told you that we might not have room to bring your presents with us and you were fine with it! I thought that was very mature of you. I think your favorite present was your new bike. You rode it all over the campground, you even went out of sight from us, which made you seem like such a big girl. Your new thing that you are talking about is that you want to get your ears pierced now that you are 7 because you remember the one time last year that daddy told you that you could get your ears pierced some time after you turned seven. You have a very good memory. :)
You are treasured and love ever so dearly by Daddy and me.
