I know the calendar says that it's been thirteen years, but I still think of  you as this little girl...

Oh, sweet Audrie, what a beautiful young woman you are growing into. You are funny, intelligent, talented, beautiful, and nothing short of amazing. How very blessed our lives have been since you made your way into the world on a cold Sunday morning thirteen years ago.

I love you so!
Happy birthday, my sweet little girl.

Love, Mom

**I had scheduled this to publish last Monday. I don't know why it didn't, and I've been so busy that I hadn't even noticed until I sat down to write a new post. I've officially been a mom of a teenager for a week now. It seems so surreal. I'm in a state of denial right now. I forget how many other steps come before acceptance, but I know it will be a while before '13' sinks in. **
