Happy Birthday, Bridie!

Ten years ago today......

Giddy with anticipation, Daddy and I checked into the hospital. We were inducing labor because you were on your way to being a very big baby. I was so excited, because I knew by dinnertime, I'd be holding you in my arms.

There you were. 9.5 pounds of pink perfection. You were a very pretty newborn, which is not very common!

The last 10 years with you have been a joy and you are growing into the most amazing person. While you seem soft and shy, you have such a strong core, and really know how to use it to get something you really want.
Your imagination and writing talent are true gifts, and it gives me such joy to see you put them to use. To exercise your brain, stretch your creative abilities. Keep it up!

You also have physical gifts. Your connection with horses is innate and you have a natural seat and sensitive hands. I've watch with such pride as you've overcome many fears and obstacles in this very challenging sport.
You are such a loving daughter. A good friend to your friends, and a good sister to Aidan. You have a heart of gold.

Keep being you, Baby Bridie, and you will have a wonderful life!
