Happy Birthday Sparkle Pink Beauty


You woke up this morning within ten minutes of the time, three years ago you emerged- pink and screaming, lovely and feisty. You haven't really changed all that much since that hot July morning- you have just learned to refine yourself and become more.... more.... I don't even know the way to describe, wait- more of a Sparkle; a pink beauty, more devine.
So:
Happy Birthday
Happy Birthday
Just for you
Happy Birthday
and may all our dreams come true
When you blow out the candles,
One light stays aglow.
That's the love-light in your heart
Wherever you go.

I love you so very much my little daughter. Iris Mae, Happy THIRD Birthday, writing about you is as close to poetry as I'll ever get.

OMG! she is too crazy cute! there's a glitch at our computers at work tonight, so I thought I'd sneak online and check if I could see your photos--it worked!
What a pretty baby!
