Happy 5th Birthday, Anna

Our sweetie Bugga is five.  She is happy, feisty, loving, cuddly, smart, creative, imaginative and so very caring.  My mom says that she has “fire in her belly” and we agree.  It is my most sincere prayer that she always has that fire, that she always has the courage to be just who she is.

A while back, Anna and I were in the car together and we heard this song that plays on her slideshow below.  After listening for a minute, I turned to see Anna smiling wide, we both knew it was “her” song. 🙂

The chorus goes like this:

She’s a wild one
With an angel’s face
She’s a woman-child
In a state of grace
When she was 3 years old on her daddy’s knee
He said you can be anything you want to be
She’s a wild one
Runnin’ free


This line also makes me think of our girl:

She has future plans and dreams at night
When they tell her life is hard she says that’s alright


Our baby girl is bound for great things.
