I got to spend some unexpected extra time with you these days leading up to your 5th birthday. And, you leaned on me a bit more than usual since you were sick. I took notice of those pieces of you that are inherently you, and those bits of you that are new. Mostly, I think that you are a happier girl each and every day. You have always loved growing up, thinking and talking about the next big thing. You couldn't have been happier to turn 5 today, and we couldn't be happier to have you as our daughter. Love, love, love you sweet Maggie Lowe!
