Wow! I can't believe my little girl is 8 today. Happy Birthday Ashtyn! You have brought so much joy and love into my life. I have always thought of you as my angel and "reward" for enduring some of the trials I've had. You changed me from the first day I found out I was pregnant, and my heart will always hold a special spot full of love just for you. You were such a happy, good-natured baby and have been the best 1st child anyone could ask for. I know you are growing up so fast and are already into fashion, friends, boys, and want a cell phone (will never happen!!), but could you please keep some of your innocence and sweet nature before this scary world takes it away! You are such a christ-like, compassionate girl who loves others and easily feels their pain. You are so willing to help and reach out in kindness to others. Your teacher even picked you as the kindest girl in the class this year. Your sisters adore you; your friends all want to be around you, and your mommy and daddy couldn't love you more! I hope you have a wonderful 8th year!
