How can it be? How is it even possible? Where had the time gone??? My smart, loving, cuddly, spunky, contrary, independent, quirky little girl is 9!
Miss Gabby, it has been an absolutely amazing adventure watching your grow (and sometimes having to try to keep you whole and safe, my little daredevil). You push every boundary you encounter and are not afraid to speak your mind. I am so looking forward to seeing the strong, confident and determined young woman you will become. I may have gained a head full of gray hair by the time we reach that point, but I look forward to many more years of adventure with you.
