I still remember the minute the doctor put Emily into my arms. She was the most perfect thing that had ever happened to me.
She was such a fun baby and child! She loved to learn, to experience new things, and was just always happy!
Through the years, she's maintained a few of her favorite things: Pooh, the coast of Maine, being alone (although now it's her room rather than a plastic farm), and dressing nicely.
Happy 17th Birthday to my sweet Emily!
I'll love you forever,
I'll like you for always,
As long as I'm living
my baby you'll be.
