Happy Birthday Sweet Goose

How can you be 6 years old. I remember so clear the day you were born. We rushed to the hospital and waited and waited. You were a c-section baby but your Mom and Dad took so long before letting the grandparents in. Your Daddy wouldn't tell us what you looked like. He said "Just wait and see". I fell in love with you at first site. You had lots of black hair and a puffy face and weighed almost 9 pounds. I called you "my south of the border baby". It's funny, because your Daddy looked like that as well.
While you were still in the hospital, I would go take care of you. Mommy had her mommy taking care of her. Then when Mommy went back to work, I watched you. I loved seeing you every day. Kissing those sweet cheeks of yours. I watched you til you were almost 5. It was decided that you needed to strech those wings you have.
Everyone says that you are so funny. Seriously everyone. Little kids to adults. You are funny. I don't know what it is. I was trying to pin point why. The only thing I could come up with is that you think outloud. You love everyone. You can remember anything.
A little bit of time with you is like a whole day of sunshine.
You wanted a little rag doll like mine. Well, you actually wanted mine. I had Pat of All is Bright make you one similar. It is beautiful. So much cuter than mine. Can't wait til you see it tonight.
I ordered you a tooth fairy pillow from GiGi Petals. It has a crown and a tutu. (You wear tutus almost every day) I know how bad you want to loose your first tooth.
Well Goose if I could freeze you I would. I love you sweet girl.

P.S. Piper wasn't sure about those pearls. I have all of your pearls and will bring them to you tonight.

Happy happy birthday to your sweet little Goose! Debby, that's why I like you so much. The pleasure you get from children is such a gift. I never understand those that are annoyed by kids. They bring such happiness, innocence, sunshine and joy into your life. I know that Goose will love your gifts, just as she loves you! "It is no small thing to be loved by those that are so fresh from God." Just as she is a blessing to you, you are a blessing to her! Love, Penny

Oh- Debbie- Happy birthday to your little Goose. Can you believe she is 6 already? She SOOO reminds me of SweetCheeks. Every family needs one of her. I know what an important part of your life she was for her first 5 years..that is something that can never be taken away. God bless you- I wish we could "freeze" them at this most sweetest stage ever. xo Diana

Almost have tears in my eyes at this post. There must be a special bond between grandmothers and granddaughters. I just spent the afternoon with mine, and I treasured every minute of it. Happy birthday to your special little doll.

Forgot to say we had rain all day here. What about you? Kathy and I had a fun outing up to Tipp City.
Too bad the buzzards aren't deterred by bad weather, huh? Did you ever tell me how long they stay? Gawd- I hope our ugly guys don't show up.....

Happy Birthday to your little Goose! Sounds like you have some VERY fun things to take her for her birthday!

I have almost finished gathering, and crafting the things to send you for our Easter Swap! It has been so much fun. I'll get them in the mail sometime next week!

Happy birthday to that sweet girl. Her personality sounds just like my son's. He is 13 and when in English class everyone was asked to use one word to describe their classmates, they all wrote "funny" for Zack. And he remembers everything! Happy weekend wishes to you, Tammy
