My mom painted this beautiful Winnie The Pooh picture with my favorite quote on it for Courtney’s nursery when she was born. It reads, “As soon as I saw you, I knew an adventure was about to happen.”
Oh, Courtney, the adventures you have brought us on these past 8 years. Adventures that have brought us heart ache and joy, tears and laughter, fear and excitement. Some adventures I never even imagined we would go on that first day I held you in my arms. Most of these adventures have been far from easy but every single one of them I would go on with you again because each one of them have made me so proud to be your mom.
You are 8 now and there are still so many adventures to go. No matter the adventure, you keep being the beautiful little girl that you are.
We love you more than words can say. Happy 8th Birthday, Courtney Cathryn!
