happy 10th birthday to my little princess!

wow. i think i say this every year, but how does time fly by so fast... i remember the days she was born and had the longest skinniest legs and for a moment i regretted allowing my doctor to induce labor 4 days early... she looked so skinny like she needed more baking time with her little olive oil legs . . . well, those legs are still long, but she has grown into them. i can not believe she is ten.

this year for her birthday, i decided to re-do her room to match the girl she has grown into. bright colors, a place for her trophies, a sitting spot to read and and a bookshelf for her books...

i love you so much little girl and can not even imagine that i used to think that i didn't "need" a girl. i was so happy with my boys and thought a third boy would be perfect (and he probably would have been), but you are perfection all your own. we love you so much and can not fathom not having our autumn in our lives. i love you sweet girl, happy birthday. i hope you love your new room!!

Awwww, such a sweet post! Love the room too! I am redecorating my 7 yr old daughters room right now, almost done, cant wait for the big reveal! She has a reading nook in one corner and a cute little market with an awning in another, all designed/made by her dad & me :) I bet your daughter LOVES that space!
