Birthday girl!

7 years old!  What??  I can't believe it.  She is growing up too fast.
Eliza is my sweetheart.  She is the perfect first child because she is calm and easy and isn't damaged by all the mistakes we have made as parents, and will probably keep making.  
This is my girl who...

Still wants to have snuggle time everyday

Ties the shoes of the boy who sits next to her in class everyday because he doesn't know how

Helps Jackson with his reading and writing and gets more excited than him when he does a good job

Loves reading and math

Sleeps with about a dozen stuffed animals every night

 Is not even close to losing a tooth yet

Will watch Curious George and Mickey Mouse with Jackson because she knows he still likes them (she probably does too)

Has an incredible memory but a terrible sense of direction (totally from me)

Is a friend to everyone

Makes me happier than I ever thought I could be as a mom

Love her so much
