This morning I woke up next to my little birthday girl and gave her a kiss, making sure to let her stay asleep. We didn't even mention to her that today is her birthday because her party isn't until the weekend. I didn't want to confuse her.
We know what today marks though, and it's a day to celebrate whether she knows it or not.
Hanna came into this world at just 6lbs 11oz, and brightened every single one of our days since then. We didn't know at the time that she would turn our whole world completely upside-down and that she would change us. All of us, for the better.
Today she is four years old. A running, skipping, jumping four year old. A trouble-maker, and a sassy talker. She's going to have a Strawberry Shortcake party, because she asked for it. She is one amazing little girl who shows, even at just four years old that she chooses not to place DIS in her ability.
Since she is still a little medical mystery, the puzzle that just can't be solved, the unknown is scary. The now-we knows though, are clear and simple. This girl of ours is a very special, unique, strong, and awesome little thing, and she will always be my hero.
Happy Birthday sweet girl!!
