When did this

become this

HOLD ME.

She is nine today.

She has her own twitter account (on which she is way funnier than I am).

She emails her friends from her iTouch.

She likes to experiment with my camera.

She is into Taylor Swift.  And Justin Bieber. And Zach Efron. and Lady Gaga.

She knows all the words to “I and Love and You” by the Avett Brothers.

She spends a lot of time in the bathroom.

She spends a lot of time in front of the mirror.

She spends a lot of time with a phone glued to her ear.

She spends a lot of time being moody.

She is on Team Jacob.

She watches American Idol and Project Runway and Wizards of Waverly Place and Full House.

She likes Silly Bandz and Words With Friends and Fashion Week.

She is a dancer. She is a singer. She is an actress.

She won’t wear a jacket.

She wears leggings and boots and plaid shirts and hoodies and sunglasses and scarves and hats.

She wears her “I heat Jake Ryan” shirt with pride, and actually knows who he is.

She is a little girl who wants to be big.

She is trouble.

She is awesome.

She is one of the three best things I have ever done.

  1. My boy, my tiny baby, joy of my heart, my eldest of four, is also nine today. I am stunned, in so many ways.

  20. Happy Birthday Emily! They grow up so fast. I am not far behind you – I’ll have a 9-year old come October, yikes. And mine is definitely on Team Jacob too. He thinks Edward Cullen is a NUB. LOL

  33. That makes me want to be your 9-year-old in my next life, because I didn’t have any of those toys until after I’d been to 7 years of college.
