Eight Years.

I loved you before I knew you...
30 weeks in utereo...



Mere hours after our first meeting
I loved you so much it took my breath away...
One day old...



And 8 years later,
You still take my breath away.
Every single day.

"I'm gonna watch you shine
gonna watch you grow
Gonna paint a sign so you'll always know
As long as one and one is two
There could never be a father (and mother!)
who loves his daughter as much as I love you..."
(From Paul Simon's "Father & Daughter")



Happy 8th Birthday, Mary Elizabeth "Libbey" Litton!

I got the pleasure to be there in person w/my beautiful grand daughter this year. With 10 inches of snow, she loved sledding down that big ole hill also! She is such a wonderful, sweet, and honest child. She amazes me w/her talents also! Hope she gets to have that slumber party this weekend. I am so blessed to have 2 grand daughters names after me...
