Well my little girl is now thirteen, she is officially a teenager. I can not believe how time fly's. One day when me and Clint had only been married for about 10 months I came home from work to find my bathroom sink full of baby itiems. Like baby food, rattle, bib, baby magazine, bottle etc. I asked Clint "what's all this?" He told me that we have a little girl up in heaven and she is waiting to come down to our home. How can you argue with that. Ten months later she was born. All I can say is what joy she has brought to our home. She was a good baby and an even better toddler, she was very easy going and by the time she was 18 months old she spoke like a 3yr old. I loved dressing her and taking her out. Over the last 13 years she has grown up to be quit a wonderful young lady. I remember when she was about twelve and starting to transition from little girl to young lady(teenager). One second she would be my sweet little girl and then out of the blue ten minutes latter talk about an attitude. I remember praying and asking the Lord to help me be a good mother to this pre-teen, help me to understand her and to be patient. I aked for guidance on knowing what to do. I tell you there were times I didn't even know how to handle this new kid. I received several promptings and inspiration from the Lord. Me and Taylor have become the best of friends. She tells me everything that goes on in her life, what she is feeling, what is going on with her friends, school, church, boys, everything. We can just sit on her bed and talk away. Clint can't believe everything I know and what she tells me. We have such fun together, we laugh and joke and she is such a huge help to me. She is a wonderful student, She gets all A's and all of her teachers just love having her in there class. She loves to read, watch movies, attend her church activities and have sleep overs with her friends. She also enjoys going to the lake and on vacation. She plays volleyball for her school and also plays club volleyball, she also enjoys swimming and swims every summer for the swim team. She is a great big sister and her sister love her and look up to her. We are so grateful to have her in our home and how fortunate we feel that the lord has blessed us with her. I am very blessed to have been given the privlege of being her mother. She bring us so much joy and happiness, we just wouldn't be complete without her. We love you Taylor!!! Happy Birthday!!!!
