Happy 7th Meredith!

Today is Meredith's 7th birthday. She's 7! I can hardly believe it.

As I look back at the following pictures, I'm struck at how 7 seems so young, and yet so old at the same time.

Ah, yes. I certainly remember the hours...and hours...and hours of labor that just wouldn't bring Meredith out into the world. So they did a c-section. Certainly wasn't the plan, but of course she was well worth the wait!

How could you possibly resist those beautiful blue eyes?

Yeah, we were (and still are) smitten.

She makes us laugh...every day!

Just melts my heart!

Again with the eyes!

Poor girl, she still hasn't gotten to go to Disney World!

Always a princess.

Different year, same princess.

First day of preschool...I still think she looks too young!

Enter baby brother Jesse. She was smitten with him!

Despite the 4 years between them, they still have fun playing together all the time.

Of course I can't finish this post without including one of her favorite pictures.

And her other favorite picture.

And here she was today. 7 years old. With her new best friend, her American Girl Doll, Emma.

I love you Meredith and hope you have a wonderful and special 7th year!
