Today is Princess Emily's birthday. Tomorrow is Papa's birthday. 4 years ago today, Kirsten, Hannah, Gaga & I were anxiously awaiting the news that Emily was born. (Papa and I were hoping she would make it one more day, Heather was not in agreement to this). It was a cold fall Maryland day. When we got the word that you had made your entrance into the world we rushed to the hospital to see this precious little girl. Kirsten and Hannah were so happy to have a new little sister, and Gaga and I were happy to have another precious grand-daughter. It is hard to believe it has been 4 years ago. I have missed so much of your growing up time being so far away, but I have enjoyed whatever time I have had to watch you grow. You are a precious beautiful smart little girl. Nana and Papa love you very much. I can't wait to see you. This is a picture of the last time you were here and your Aunt Kiki bought you this little princess dress. You had the best time in it. You are our precious little princess Emily. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
Here is a picture of Papa trying to hold the wiggly Emily. Papa is very happy to have a birthday so close to yours. He will soon be coming to see you and he can't wait. I can't wait until you come to visit for Thanksgiving.
