Happy Birthday, Bright-Eyed Beauty!!!

I have no idea where the last three years have gone!
I also have no idea how there was life before Bright-Eyed Beauty!
She is my daughter's second daughter, a classic middle-child.
This sweet girl has her mother's eyes and her father's colorful personality.
Beauty defines the word contradiction. Her free, independent spirit keeps her busy playing and talking as though nobody else in a room...then she will climb on my lap and ask if we can do the "Baby Dance" (Nana snuggles her real tight, rocking and singing 'You are my baby'). Moments later, she jumps up and leaves you in the dust!

At times when I think of Bright-Eyed Beauty, Billy Joel's song, "She's Got A Way" comes to mind...so I attached the lyrics below.

Happy 3rd Birthday, Bright-Eyed Beauty!
You have filled the hearts of all who know you, with joy which has never been known before. May you always fly like a bird and snuggle in your nest.
I love you so, my Bright-Eyed Beauty.

She's got a way about her
I don't know what it is
But I know that I can't live without her
She's got a way of pleasin'
I don't know why it is
But there doesn't have to be a reason anywhere

She's got a smile that heals me
I don't know what it is
But I have to laugh when she reveals me
She's got a way of talkin'
I don't know why it is
But it lifts me up when we are walkin' anywhere

She comes to me when I'm feelin' down
Inspires me without a sound
She touches me and I get turned around
She's got a way of showin'
How I make her feel
And I find the strength to keep on goin'
She's got a light around her
And ev'rywhere she goes a million
Dreams of love surround her ev'rewhere

She comes to me when I'm feelin' down
Inspires me without a sound
She touches me, I get turned around oh oh oh

-Billy Joel
