Perfect Moment Monday

Today was my niece Emily's sixth birthday. I can hardly believe that six years have gone by since this beautiful little person came into my life. Emily has the purest heart, and sweetest demeanor. A cuddler. A snuggler. A hugger. A laugher. She has a smile that lights up the room, and a personality that makes even the hardest of hearts want to have kids. This was my conversation, as it happened with her, earlier tonight.

Me: Happy Birthday Emster.
Emily: Thank You!

Me: What did you do for your birthday?
Emily: We went to Friend-leeeeeeez.

Me: What did you get?
Emily: A huge, huge, huge ice cream. It had vanilla, no, wait, it had cookie dough, and peanut butter, and whip cream, and chocolate, and sprinkles, and whip cream, and sprinkles all over it!

Me: Wow, that sounds nice.
Emily: *giggling* Yeah. There was sprinkles all over it!

Me: Cool! Did you open any presents?
Emily: Not yet.

Me: Well, I better let you go so you can open your presents. I just wanted to wish you a super duper happy birthday. I can't believe you are such a big girl now.
Emily: I know...*giggles*

Me: I hope now that you are six that doesn't mean you are too old to be my cuddle bug, or too cool to want to play with me.
Emily: Aunt Krissy, I will never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever be too cool for you.

Me: Awww thanks Em. I love you. Happy Birthday.
Emily: I love you too, Aunt Krissy!

Ahhhh... now that's a perfect moment. Happy Sixth Birthday Emily!
