Six Years Old!!!

newborn Emma

Six years ago today, Emma captured my world. So small. So perfect. So graceful. So opinionated!


Six years later, I still can’t believe she is in our life. What a joy and privilege it is to hear her, watch her, and learn with her, each and every day!

Happy birthday, Emma!
