Happy 12th Birthday, Miss Sierra Elizabeth

 Ohhhkay.  Deep Breath.


My baby girl is 12 today.

I can't even say those words out loud without tears springing to my eyes
{I guess I can't even say it in my head, either, because ~ yeah ~ tears}.


Miss Sierra Elizabeth,
Our oldest baby girl.
The biggest big sissy.
You are twelve today.
And what a milestone that is.

You are the one I can count on for help in any situation.

The planner.
The organizer.
You are an old soul.

I always joke that when you are grown with a family of your own, you'll run a mighty tight ship.
You expect a lot.

But deep down, you have a tremendous love for others.
Miss Tay, for example.  She thinks you're about the greatest thing on earth.
And I think the feeling is mutual :)


You are my beautiful dancer.
I could watch you dance every day {and I guess I do!  You're always dancin' around}.

You love to have fun!
You are always up for a new adventure . . .

And while you are super comfy in your camo, sitting in a blind, hunting with Daddy,

 You are equally comfy in your dressiest dress, hair curled, earrings in, glammin' it up.

You are a perfect combination!

You love to go on nature walks,
photograph everything,
shop till you drop,
and write in your journal.

You are growing into a beautiful young lady, right before our very eyes.

And while I couldn't be prouder of who you are becoming,

I would be lying if I said it didn't make me a little sad too.
Sometimes I wish I could keep you just as you are.
Right here with me.

Love you so very much, baby girl!
Happiest birthday ♥
