Gracie turns 6 | A personal post | Melissa DeWitt Photography North Eastern Indiana Children Photographer

My sweet Gracie Monroe, these past six years have been pretty amazing. Your sweet old soul and free spirit understands so much about this world. You have always been creative...you love to paint and have always begged to pick out your clothes. Sometimes, when you were younger I let you wear your miss matched clothes out and about because you were so proud of what you had picked. You love your independence and to see you smile once you achieved something on your own lights up my world. You are such a little fireball and always know what you want.

Looking back at these photos I laugh at how silly you are. You have such a wonderful personality and your huge grin is contagious. Your unique beauty just takes my breathe away. I am so blessed that God made me your mommy.

You are turning into such a talented dancer...your love and passion for ballet blows me away. I know that whatever you put your mind to, you end up achieving with full force. You are determined, you are intelligent, you are you. I wouldn't have it any other way. I love the little lady you are becoming and am so very proud of my big six year old and everything that you are. You always stand up for yourself and what you love, you are incredible.

I love you, to the moon and back, Gracie Monroe. Happy sixth birthday, baby girl.
