Daria's Double Digit Day

How's that for a bit of alliteration? Can you say it 10 times fast?

Today is the birthday of my baby girl. It's a big one for her - double digits - but she'll always, ALWAYS, be my baby girl. Thankfully she's perfectly ok with this. One might even say that she relishes her position as my baby.

My Baby as a Baby

What I do know for sure is that my sweet girl is amazing. She is smart and courageous and strong in ways I never was. She works hard in school and she is becoming quite an athlete too. She plays fastpitch softball, swims and loves to shoot hoops in out yard. She loves to create with markers, clay, and anything else she can find.

She does drive me a little nuts on occasion but I adore this girl and I treasure every single minute with her. I look forward to her next decade, and her next, and her next...

Birthday Girl

I love you very much Daria!

What an ugly child. I can only imagine what her parents must look like.
