This is beautiful. And now you have some part of that letter written down for her.

Happy 6th Birthday, T!

Thanks, Omaha--I was all teary writing it. That one was a long time brewing inside of me, and it felt good to get it onto paper!

Awww... I'm a little late, but not *too* late to wish T a very happy birthday!! I hope we can meet her this year. Oh, and tell her that her "virtual friend" Linton will catch up to her (age-wise) in 4 months! I think they'd be good friends if we met "in real life."

What a beautiful post! And what a wonderful, marvelous gift, this girl of yours!
