May 22, 2005: A baby girl named Sophia is born to her proud parents Elissa and Joey.
We have been counting down the days and May 22nd is here! My babies birthday. My Joey and my Phi! When I met Joey he was a young dark haired 30 year old and The Phi was not even a thought in our minds. And here we are celebrating Joey's 40th birthday. He may have much more gray hair but he is still the most amazing man I know.
And my Phi! My smart, beautiful, obsessed with her 3ds and Club Penguin kids. She loves long skirts and is so patient when it comes to dealing with her little sister. I cannot believe that the little baby that was just in my arms is 8 years old. I can't believe I not only have made it through 8 years of motherhood, but that we have raised a really awesome kid.
Joey and Phi, you 2 have taught everything about what love is and what it means to be fulfilled and happy.
Joey you will never know how thankful I am that you are mine. You make life good and I am more me when I am with you. Plus I am still so obsessed with you.
Phi I am so proud of the kid you are and are becoming. You are so smart and work so hard and you keep us laughing.
You both bring so much joy into the world and I am so lucky to be your wife, your Momma and your family. I love you both with all my heart.
Happy happy happy birthday my loves!
