Anique Turns Eleven

My little Anique turns 11 today. She isn't so little anymore. A recent growth spurt has brought her up past my shoulder now. A few more inches and she'll have passed me by.

She is a sweet, tender-hearted, dramatic child. Her emotions play out in real-time. Unguarded and open most always. She can be quick to anger but is also quick to let it go. She is a chatterbox and always has something to tell you, a song to sing, knowledge to share.

She is a smart, beautiful girl. It is a pleasure to watch her grow up. See her quirky personality shine through.

Someday I'll digitize all those baby photos I have of her too but here's the last few years.These aren't maybe the best photos but they show a pretty good glimpse into the goofy child she is.


This is what happens when you leave the camera and remote your were testing up when you leave for work.  

Talent show. She has guts. Wrote her own song and performed it in front of the whole school parents without musical back-up.
