Happy Birthday, Kid 1

Today you are fourteen! I can hardly believe it.

How about 14 things I love about you today?
  1. I love your kindness
  2. I love your sense of humor
  3. I love your grace
  4. I love your smile
  5. I love your great big brain
  6. I love your willingness to help
  7. I love that home is where you want to be
  8. I love your friends
  9. I love your sensitivity to things of the Spirit
  10. I love your dedication
  11. I love your blue toenails
  12. I love your humility
  13. I love your gentleness
  14. I love your voice
Naturally, there's so much more I could say, and so much to add - details and memories and dreams and fantasies - but let's just say I've never regretted a minute of having you in my world. If I had it all to do again, I wouldn't change a thing (except maybe that one haircut that we will NEVER SPEAK OF AGAIN). I adore you, my sweet one.


  1. Today is my kid 1's bday too! I don't think I'll get to blogging it until later but I did venture out and buy him a snake so with a week old baby - that should count for something. Happy bday to your kid 1!

  2. Happy Birthday Becca's Kid 1!

    What a beautiful thing you've done for your child. I'm sure she'll remember it always. (And if not, you can always print it out and then she can keep it for always!)

  3. What a beautiful tribute, Becca!

  4. Happy Birthday to my namesake. HEE HEE. Really, 14, not sure I like that.


If you want to say it, I want to hear it. Bring it on.
