the b-ster

my #2 girlie pie, brooke, is 6 years old today...wow.
i remember talking wtih brit, her birthmom, for the very first time...it was fathers day 2003.
and like any normal person, we took a picture of it!!
since b was adopted, the adoption agency did not allow anyone, other than ryan and i to be with or see brooke...so this is paige's first time ever seeing her. look at the excitement.
i have proof that paige loved b! she had waited years to be sister and brooke was her dream come true...until she could talk and get into her stuff!
paige would come home from school and do all her reading assignments aloud to brooke.to think, we thought this was our final fam. oh, but god had way more in store for us. we were still pretty cute, though!
and how that precious girl has changed our lives..and how she has changed too!
brooke is beautiful inside and out...and absolute walking comic book wtih one liners to spare.
she has a heart of gold...the wit of an irishman...and the wisdom beyond her years.
but most of all, she's our brookie cookie...we love her and thank god for her every single day.
life would be so boring without brooke.
we also thank god every single day for her amazing and wonderufl birthmom, brittany...that we were soooo lucky to add to uor fam when we adopted b. brit, we love you!
{all of us last in june}
so happy bday brooke...you are one amazing kid. attitude and all. i'll take every single part as long as i get all of you! happy bday b-ster. happy bday.
