Oh, Jen...Jenna, Jenna, Jenna. Where to start? You, my precious girl, are amazing. You are absolutely brilliant in every way. You can outsmart a rocket scientist and outshine the brightest of stars. You are a gorgeous girl, and have the most wonderful heart. At school, you are best friends with EVERYONE. Because of your sensitive hearing, your teacher sits you at the table with your deaf classmates. You have a special place in your heart for these friends, and you make an effort every day to learn as much sign language as you can, just so you can talk to them like you talk to your hearing friends. You are kind to all of your classmates, and for that, baby, you are rewarded with friendship and respect. You have such a good heart; it makes me smile.
You are such a fun big sister, but let's get this straight--you ARE a big sister. When Clairey annoys you, you let her know; however, you love her so very much, and often hug her and tell her, "Clairey-bear, I love you SO much!" You always want her to sleep with you, and are so disappointed when I tell you, "Nope, it's a school night." Every morning, you snuggle with her before you have to get out of MY bed (yes, MY bed---you end up in there, too) for school.
You, my sweet baby, are the other half of the light that brings me joy every day. It took me so long to get pregnant with you, and every single day, I thank God that I was finally given the chance to be your mommy. Everytime I look at you, my life brightens just that much more, and I often get a lump in my throat, because I am just so blessed to have you.
You are such a shining star, Jen. The world is a better place because you're in it. You are going to do such amazing and wonderful things in your lifetime. I am SO proud to be your mommy and I SO love you!
