Today at 3:01 pm, Claremarie celebrated her 8th birthday. It is her golden birthday since she is turning 8 on the 8th.

To sweet Claremarie........

"God shaped you first inside, then out; He formed you in your mother's womb. You are breathtaking! Body and soul you are marvelously made! What a creation! God knows you inside and out. He knows every bone in your body. He knows exactly how you were made, bit by bit, how you were sculpted from nothing into something. God watched you grow from conception to birth; all the stages of your life were spread out before Him, the days of your life all prepared before you had even lived one day."

Psalm 139:13-16, The Message

I'll never forget how excited I was 8 years ago today when the dr. said, "It's a girl." I was so convinced that I was having a boy. You are my precious firstborn, the child that has had to be the guinea pig while your parents learn how all this works. You have such an easy going personality and sweet temperment. I hope you know today and always how loved you are by your dad and I but most importantly how loved you are by your Heavenly Father.

You had a great party for Claremarie and that verse is a wonderful reminder to us all!! I think you've done a great job "learning" to be parents!
