Happy 3rd Birthday Charlotte!

Once upon a time...3 years ago....
AHHHHHH!!!!! What happened??? :)
OH wow Tottie :) You are one wild cyclone of personality! There are so many ways to describe you: courageous, fighter, vocal, kind, loving, shy, boisterous, funny, theatrical, entertainer, cuddler, strong .... We Love You!

Oh the things you have taught us this year....

We never new what Juvenile Rheumtoid Arthritis & uveitis did to children. Thank you for teaching us, so in turn we can be advocates & teach others... in hopes of eradicating this disease...
We never knew a child could be SO vocal in such LOUD ways... you even shock your sisters sometimes... and the puppy...
And we never knew that you could be so uber-sweet & kind as well. You know pain & when you see others crying or hurt, you are extremely empathetic & wish you could help. You are the puppy whisperer at our house, you speak to Casey in a language just you two understand & we are lucky when we get to witness those moments.

You are so many things! Like an actress...

A swimmer....

A Dancer!!!!!

But most of all - you are YOU! And we love all the amazing facets of YOU! A friend once told me something that reminds me so much of YOU, Charlotte:

"How delightfully rich is one's mind, when doused in hope & left overnight to seed."On your 3rd birthday, we wish you many riches & much hope! This 3rd year is going to be fun! You are AMAZING & we love you, love you, love you!

HAPPY 3rd BIRTHDAY!!!!
