Emily Ann Lambert had arrived. 19.5 inches long. 7lbs 9oz.
She was born while my brother was stationed at Fort Drum in New York State so even if I had not been in graduate school, I still would not have been there for her birth. I didn't meet Miss Emily until she was a month old. I have never been around for her birthday. That is just the nature of the academic calendar.
I was around to watch her baptism and am proud that she is being raised in a church community.
She has grown into a young child with determination and a mind of her own.
She knows what she wants - even when that is daddy's police shoes. Seriously - just ask her. She will tell you. Lots of personality.
She is the older sister - but not by much. (She will be turning 5 while Katie is 3.5 years old and Kinsley just turned 2 in February).
She loves Hello Kitty. And has my mom buying anything with Hello Kitty on it. I think her grandma loves her more than anyone!
She thinks any red shirt is"Pawpaw's shirt" (because my dad loves NCSU so much). I think it is rubbing off.
She has my heart.
Where does the time go?
Happy 5th birthday Emily Ann!
