Today is Wren's eighth birthday. Seven pounds, seven ounces at seven in the evening on December ninth, 2005.
It's been a heck of a ride ever since.
I think the best part of parenting this little girl is seeing the incredible creativity and energy that pours out of every fiber of her being. Sometimes it's like lassoing a tornado, and the challenge inherent in not stifling the best parts of her while guiding her on the path she is on is a huge one, but we'll make it. Pressure creates diamonds, right?
Well, this one is going to sparkle with the fire of a thousand suns.
I think she already does.
