Today you turn 9!! You woke up extra early because you were so excited and loved opening your gifts before breakfast (they included a new sports bag for softball, fishing lures and a cat pillow). We made a “birthday weekend to-do list” and you picked fishing, tennis, kayaking and horseback riding. You are the most energetic, athletic and competitive person that I know. You are fearless but also have a sensitive side and still ask to sit in our laps and be carried on daddy’s shoulders. Good thing you are still a little peanut, just barely 50 lbs depending on the scale and time of day!
You are such a good shopping buddy and love going in the dressing room with me to give your opinion on the clothes that I try on. And you were such a good sport about going to countless stores to look at kitchen sinks and faucets. But still, your dream job right now is to become a gym teacher.
You have done an amazing job over the past 9 years of being an inquisitive world traveler. On all of our adventures, whether it’s Florida, Hawaii or Europe, you love to learn about new places and you are always coming up with new places that you want to explore. You love getting passport stamps but also going into castles and churches, and asking questions.
Favorite shows: Nature Cat, America’s Got Talent, Too Cute on Animal Planet
Favorite activities: Fishing!!, basketball, softball (pitching), bike riding and shopping at Ikea, pottery barn and Anthropolgie with me!
Happy Birthday Thérèse!!
