Today, we enter the second year of "teenage-hood"!! This morning, at about 7:30, Richard woke me up saying, "Do you remember what we were doing exactly 14 years ago at this time? We were FREAKING out!". It was those first few hours of her life that I remember all too well. She was whisked away from us soon after her delivery, and the news came to us that she had been placed in the NICU. It ended up being nothing serious, she just needed a little bit of oxygen and then she was fine. I should have known then that this little baby girl would forever keep us on our toes!!
Happy Birthday Kirsten - you are a priceless gift. We treasure every day that we have with you. You make us proud every day. Keep following Christ with all your heart, and He will guide you. Thank you for being such a fun and adventurous daughter - for trying so hard to be a good big sister - for being a really fun friend - and for ALWAYS keeping us on our toes!! We love you to the moon and back a million times!!
Love, Mom and Dad

Happy Birthday to my First Grand-child. You couldn't wait to come into this world coming 3 weeks early. You always try to do things on your time schudule.:) You are a special girl. God has big things in store for you. I can't wait to see what He does in your life. I love you and am so proud of you. You are beautiful inside and out (maybe just a little strongwilled) ha. But put that energy in the right direction and you will do big things. I am glad you had a Happy Birthday. See you soon. Love you. Nana
This is a beautiful picture of you and your "boy".
