Today is the queens birthday. She is 10 years old! How in the world do I have a 10 year old? She is my first. I can't believe how fast the time has gone by. It seems like yesterday I was watching her smile a toothless grin, learn to sit up, watching her crawl and helping her to walk. Now she's this beautiful girl that loves to read and play her Nintendo DS. She is very independent and helpful. She has recently learned to change her brothers diaper. Not because I asked her to, but because she wanted to. She likes to help me do the dishes and make my bed. I know I should enjoy it know because soon it will be over and she won't be interested in all that stuff. the queen is a great big sister. The princess and the ruler drive her crazy sometimes, but she loves them like crazy. She has the biggest heart of anyone I know. Okay, enough sentimental stuff. I sitting here crying at my desk.
Every year since she was 3 we go to IHOP for breakfast on her birthday. She gets a smiley face pancake and the server will put the candles on it and we sing to her. This is the only picture I got because don't you know that the camera batteries died after the first picture.
Tonight we are going to Hometown Buffet for dinner with family and friends. Then we will have cake at our house afterwards. On Sunday we are having a party with her friends from school. We are going to a Tea House and having a formal tea party. It's going to be so much fun!
Happy Birthday to my baby girl. No matter how old you get, you will always be my baby girl. I love you with all my heart and the world is a better place because you are in it.
