Happy 12th Birthday!!

The years seem to have flown by, yesterday I was bringing 
home a perfect baby girl and today you're only 3 inches shorter than me.

(our first day together October 2000)

I'm very grateful to have the opportunity to spend plenty of 
quality time together. It's hard not to cry thinking of all the
things you've out grown and that next year you'l become a teenager.

I so want to pick you up in my arms and protect you from
the harsh realities of life, but your wings are starting
 to spread and the more they do the more beautiful you become
trying to find your own way in the world.

Happy Birthday we love you! Sunshine!

Luna had such a great day complete with exploding confetti 
and money filled balloons, pumpkin whoopies, hip hop class and a lunch out with her Dad.
