Six years ago today, I got the prettiest present I've ever received: Laney Elisabeth Barber! After a mere four hours in labor, and only three or four pushes, Laney greeted us with a little whimper and a tiny wail. And my only girl, my second born, middle child has been charming us ever since.
Thanks to my Mom, Laney loves all things girly and pink. But she's such a people pleaser that she once told me she likes to wear dresses with Mimi, and blue jeans with me. Laney is usually mellow and laid back, but can be a leader when the need arises. She is incredibly friendly and outgoing, and makes me laugh more than any other person I know.
I love you, Laney . . . more! I hope you have a GREAT day today and an especially fun birthday party on Saturday. You deserve it -- you're the best. Thanks for all the smiles, hugs and kisses these last six years. In a world of grey, YOU are my sunshine!
