Even when Budgie was so tiny and could not understand what I was saying, I knew that we recognized each other. And even before we met, I loved her.
When she was born she was a PUDGIE BUDGIE.
I did not know that Budgie would be full of wonders and surprises!
My Budgie is very smart. She loves to read and learn.
Budgie has a great imagination and often likes to dress up in different costumes and try new looks.
My Budgie is very musical. She can play the recorder and the piano.
And her wonderful music teaher invited her to join a bell choir.
She is the only Budgie in the entire group! Here she is in her blue dress.
Budgie is articulate and outgoing. She loves her sister.
She is not spoiled in any way. Everyone is her friend.
She never pulls away from anyone that is "different" as some others do.
Budgie seems to revel in being around others and makes friends everywhere. She is always eager to play and share her toys.
She likes to play games and be silly.
The last time she was with me we dyed Easter eggs.
My Budgie, my Erin, you got your nick-name from this book..
NEVER FORGET HOW MUCH YOUR DAMMA LOVES YOU!
I hope that all through your life you will carry the knowledge of what a treasure you are to me and how much you matter, and that one day, when you have children and grandchildren of your own, you will pass that knowledge and love on to them.
