BC: Sissy, You are such an adventure each day. From the day you were born, I've always pictured all the things that you'd do and be and each day you continue to surprise and amaze me. Watching you grow into a big sister this past year has made me so proud. You've gone from a baby girl who was just putting together sentences on your last birthday to a big girl. You're a sassy fashion queen who talks up a storm, loves helping others, uses the potty and has imagination for days. You are busy all day everyday and love including your dad, grampy and I in your pretend play. You light up any room that you are in with your smile and silly personality. Loralai you are a true gift from God and I am thankful everyday that he choose to bless me with you for a daughter. Love you more, Mom
