April 1st may be April Fools Day to y'all, but to us it means that in 11 days we'll have a teenager in the house!
This is a little like my reaction, too. Husband is in denial (just a bit), Eldest is pretty stoic about it, but I'm actually pretty excited.
This is one special girl. Really, she is. I am thrilled as each year passes to see how much more she has grown. Sweet, gentle-hearted, smart, vibrant, and precious...she is all of these things to me. I can't wait to celebrate her thirteen magnificent years this April the 12th.
Happy Almost Birthday, darling girl! Let the countdown begin.
