Number 2 Turns 6

Your arrival into our world six years ago was most expeditious--a gust of wind that blew in effortlessly and without warning.  In fact, we were thankful to have caught you! When you were a baby, I'd tell you all the time that you were pure sunshine. You still are. And though your sunbeams now penetrate through the sometimes-wispy-sometimes-tumultuous clouds of thought and discovery, you remain a bright spot  in the lives of all who know you.
