A quarter of a century ago, you came into our lives.
We all were so excited for your arrival.
Amy wanted a little sister sooo badly.
And here you were...a perfect little baby doll.
You made our family complete.
Two parents...two precious children.
Such a pretty little thing...
Here's your first birthday,
with the traditional milkglass pedistal cake plate...
And, your pile of presents was bigger than you were!
I don't think you've ever liked soda pop.
You always have taken your studies very seriously...
And you have always been pleased with a job well done!
Like your big sister, there was nothing better...
than kitties out on Grammy's porch!
And like your sister, you loved to dress up.
You wore tights 24/7...
yes, even to sleep.
You two didn't miss an episode of Sesame Street.
Your play kitchen was a favorite.
Perhaps that is why you are such a good cook?!
Always active and so athletic.
Emily, you have always been our pride and joy.
We love you and we miss you.
We hope you had a fabulous birthday!
Mom and Dad
