Bailey is 10. No, Really.


Try to be a rainbow in someone’s cloud.
― Maya Angelou

Bailey Boles, you’ve had quite a year.  I’d go so far as to say that it’s been the biggest and best year ever.  Let me remind you what all you accomplished as a 9-year-old.

- You cut off 10 inches of your hair to donate.
- You made all A’s in every single class on every single report card. (ever.)
- You learned to play chimes.
- You had 4 teeth pulled without so much as a whimper. (I whimpered.)
- You completely nailed it at two piano recitals.
- You ran a 5K without stopping.
- You crafted your face off.  I mean…whoa.  So many crafts.
- You joined the Girl Scouts.
- You ate approximately 165 enormous spoonfuls of Extra Crunchy Jif peanut butter.
- You were particularly adored by your young cousins, who always squeal an excited “Bailey!!” whenever they see you.
- You unarguably enriched the lives of anyone lucky enough to spend time with you.  Your relentlessly optimistic smile was infectious.  Your genuine kindness and concern for those around you healed aching hearts, tickled funny bones, and brought pure joy.  You made your mom so proud that she thought her heart just might explode because what on earth did she ever do to deserve such a spunky, wildly unique, beautiful, brilliant, badass babe of a daughter?

Shine on, my amazing Bill.  I can’t wait to see what 10 brings.
