"A daughter is the happy memories of the past,
the joyful moments of the present,
and the hope and promise of the future."

Oh, and her parents.
Surprising us at 4:30 in the morning, the day after Easter, despite a scheduled induction date.
She came into the world on her own terms.
Which is probably a good way to start, seeing as how she is our fifth child
and the baby of our (completed) family.
She loves to eat and burp.
She smiles... occasionally,
and spits up regularly.
She has a long list of dislikes. Including but not limited to:
Sleeping. Car rides. Pooping. Thrush. Laying down. Sleeping.
Not pooping. Binkies. Loud noises. Strollers. And sleeping.
And yet... we wouldn't want it any other way.
"A sister is a gift to the heart, a friend to the spirit,
a golden thread to the meaning of life."
