I am not quite sure how this happened, but today, totally without my permission, mind you, my baby turned 7 years old. There is a small part of me that is a bit sad that she is getting so big. It really doesn't seem all that long ago when Morgan was so little and needed me for everything. Now she is really maturing and is independent in so many ways. I guess the bigger part of me is so excited for her. She is learning so many new things and is so fun to be with and talk to. I love watching her have new experiences and the courage with which she tries new things. She is such a great helper at home and her little brother and sister adore her. I feel so blessed to be her mother and that I get to help her discover who she is and her incredible potential.
For her birthday, we celebrated by taking her to her favorite restaurant, Cinzettis on Tuesday night (things were a little too crazy tonight). Last night, we made cupcakes for her class. This morning she was thrilled that Ken was going to volunteer at school with the Watch DOGS (Dads of Great Students) program. She loved having her dad at school with her and Ken loved watching her in her school element. In a few weeks, she and Trevor are going to have a combo birthday party. They have chosen to have a bowling party and they are so excited. I think it will be fun too. Happy birthday Morgan! I love you!
