Happy 9th Birthday, Amber!

This little cutie has suddenly grown up.
 
Baby niece Amber is now 9!
A Super FIERCE and attitudinous 9!
She's still snuggly with Grandmary, but now is much more independent.
If you can't find her playing with her sibs, she's deep in a book, (still with those bendy knees), or considering her books, or contemplating the next book. Or writing me a book report, or talking to me on Skype, or asking about more books.
I was so glad to visit a year ago for her baptism and to take pictures of her many faces;

Nope - this is not an inherited look, at all. NOPE.

Takes after her aunt, or something.

Do you see the future teen, or is it just me?
As grateful as I am for Skype, FaceTime, email attachments, iMessages, letters, phone calls, and notes - I still wish I was closer so I could be a better aunt to the kids, especially this little mini-me. Sending presents of books, shared birthday month amethyst heirloom jewelry from when I was her age, and random notes, just isn't enough sometimes.

I hope when, and if she ever sees this blog, she'll know that I love her very much, and wish her a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY and a fun, nifty, spectacular, exciting, and adventuresome year.

All my love,

Auntie Nettie
