To the birthday girl,

You are the sole brown hair/brown eyed child in a house full of blond hair/blue eyed children. You are unique in many ways. You can find humor when others see little and make friends when they least expect it. I look forward to watching you navigate through life and eagerly await your inevitable successes. You are so special, a true gift who is loved beyond words. You tell others, when asked your number in the family, that you are "smack dab in the middle." Know that while that may be your position in this sibling group, you will always be ahead of your peers with your kind, genuine heart. Happy birthday to my favorite nine year old.
