Happy 9th Birthday, Rachel!!

Nine years ago today you came into our lives and we were forever changed. You made us Mommy and Daddy. We are so proud of you and grateful to God for allowing us to be your parents. We love you and we celebrate you today. We hope you have a most awesome day!!

Nine things we love about you...
  1. We love your creativity. You can write the best plays, songs, and stories and we hope you will always continue to be creative.
  2. We love your confidence. You are bold in your ability to get in front of people and perform. This is something your Mommy has never been confident in.
  3. We love your friendliness. You have never been afraid to be a friend to anyone.
  4. We love your long brown hair. We really like how just growing out your bangs has changed your appearance. Not sure about how it makes you look older.... :)
  5. We love that you still have the innocence of a child. You haven't been too anxious to grow up, like some of the other girls your age have. We want you to be a child as long as you can - you have your whole life to be "grown up."
  6. We love that you like to read. You've started reading longer books and that makes us happy. We hope you will always have that thirst for reading.
  7. We love how smart you are. You've done great in school and you did awesome on your first benchmark test in school. You will do great things when you get older.
  8. We love that you love Jesus. We pray you will always want to know Him better and serve Him in everything you do.
  9. We love your bracy smile. You got braces about six months ago. You have been a trooper through this round and one day, you will see how all this work and a little pain will pay off.
