Happy 7th Birthday Marlie Katherine

I can't believe that our firstborn little girl is 7 years old today! 7 years ago we became parents and life has never been the same . . . 

At 7 years old she is . . . 

About to start 2nd grade
Becoming a good swimmer
Rocking out with her guitar
The most awesome big sister
Such an amazing helper
Almost too smart for her own good
Developing a tremendous sense of independence
An old soul with a young spirit
Learning new things all the time 
Enjoying her first summer in 2 years without a cast 
Becoming very crafty with a love for jewelry making and trying to sew
Starting to like cooking and helping in the kitchen 

Something that hasn't changed in the 7 years since she entered our world - she is still an amazing little girl and the light of our lives. I couldn't have asked for a better baby and now big girl to be the one I started my parenting journey with. She is growing way too fast . . . But it's such an amazing thing to watch and be a part of . . .
