You are the most beautiful 7 year old I have ever seen. You look up at me with your big expressive brown eyes, smiling with those loose teeth you can’t wait to lose, and I can hardly believe God chose me to be your Mami.
With your birth, your arrival to this crazy world, you instantly made it better. Your uncle Tio Tat drove all the way from San Jose to Sacramento, California and he brought Sprinkles cupcakes to celebrate your arrival!
Like God’s word says, children are a blessing from the Lord, and you were a HUGE blessing from the very beginning, especially to your daddy. He even picked your name, Allyson Jewel! (You have a really cute Daddy!)
Now, as a sassy 7 year-old, you are part of Team Hope at Rowland Ballard and well on your way to becoming a gymnast!
You sang for the first time in church this past Sunday with the Spanish choir! And you auditioned for a solo with the English choir, too!
And I know this is only the beginning!
I love seeing how you get excited about Christmas (just like your Mami!)
I’m especially looking forward to more Mami-Daughter times together!!!
