This is very special and I love the poem. It is fitting with the photo of her sitting on the front step.

Did you write the poem? because it's beautiful in it simplicity.

happy birthday to your daughter. it's amazing how time flies, isn't it? i wonder what happened to all the baby years. no wonder i'll soon be thinking along the same lines as you are doing today.

She is lovely. So is the post. Love the use of shoes -- such an apt metaphor for their growing more independent and able to stand on their own two feet because we've loved them well.

Very touching and such a beautiful post. Daughters are a priceless treasure.

Oh, you made me cry!! I love that song, and accompanied by your photos and words, a touching b-day greeting for your daughter. Who is gorgeous, BTW. (She reminds me of Julianne Moore, who is absolutely exquisite, IMO.)

Another red-head!

There's something specially moving about old shoes - especially ones which used to belong to those we love. Children's shoes bring a particular jolt.

Congrats with your baby one. Love the fact you're starting and ending with her shoes...taking steps into life. I'll bet you've raised her well to walk strongly.
