Miss Bunny is celebrating a birthday today! Not just any birthday, but a milestone in years birthday! She is now 10 years old today! Ten years ago today, Bunny was a little 6 lb 12 oz 21″ bundle of joy!
Hoss and I stressed over whether she was breathing at night, or if when she got sick at 2 weeks old if she was going to live to see the next day. Bunny started out as the skinniest baby, but come 2 months old, she was our chunkiest baby, and was often referred to as the Michelin baby.
So far, she has lived to see one decade through. She has seen Bush blunder through two terms as president and likewise, she is now witnessing Obama’s crap-shoot into his second term. She has witnessed gas prices sky-rocket, and the price of milk follow suit. She has witnessed six moves for the Curtis family, and has experienced traveling half way across the country to live in a new state that we had never visited. Likewise, she witnessed us pack up and move to Hobbs after only visiting twice. She has lived to feel the sadness of living 1,000 miles away from grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. And she has lived to feel the sadness of moving away from best friends.
Most importantly, she has lived to be baptized as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (2012). She has felt the joy of feeling the influence of the Holy Spirit, and she has become pretty sensitive to it. She has learned to own her fear of public speaking, and she has shown her faith in prayer.. She is an aspiring artist, and an aspiring pianist. Miss Bunny is my eldest child. She is the big sister to Bug and Little Cowboy, and she is my little helper in pretty much everything. She is a babysitter, a friend, and she is just plain a wonderful girl. She is imaginative, creative, and sensitive to the feelings of others. She is funny and constantly makes us laugh. She is just plain happy! She loves to read, and one day wants to be a waitress and a UPS driver. She has also expressed interest in writing and animals. Overall, she is just one great girl!
I am so grateful to have such a wonderful daughter in Bunny. She has been my guinea pig in learning how to mother and parent, and she has borne it fabulously.
Happy birthday Bunny, Daddy and I are so proud of the young woman you are becoming, and we love you very very much!
Love Daddy, Mommy, Bug, and Little Cowboy!
