My sweetest little birthday girl As I sit here drinking my coffee waiting for you to wake up, I’m having mixed emotions today as you become a 2 year old.. I am excited because I see how much you’ve grown, and I know so many magical moments await you. I can’t wait to have conversations with you about life and answer all of your questions about Jesus, makeup, careers, clothes, and anything else you want to know. But, I must admit, I am kind of sad. You are growing up so fast and there are no longer any babies in my home. The baby days with you are gone.. Over the last two years, you’ve amazed us in so many ways. You came out with the sweetest spirit but an attitude that told us you were strong-minded and independent. You are a force to be reckoned with that’s for sure, and I just love that about you. You look just like your daddy but have your mamas heart and I know your strength and persistence will serve you well in life. Being compassionate and tough will make you such a remarkable woman.
If the first two years of your life serve as any indication of what the next two will bring, I have to just push my little bit of sadness aside and embrace the part of me that’s thrilled about your growth. As much as I may wish for my baby to remain a baby, I know you can’t be forever (you’ll always be my baby though). You have to learn and explore. You need to grow and figure out who you want to be and what you want from life.
On this special day, I hope you are able to feel every ounce of love that surrounds you. I hope you know that you were born into a family that wants the very best for you. I hope that your childhood shapes up to be much of what mine was, and also a lot of what mine was not. I know life won’t always be perfect because it just doesn’t work that way. But I do know that life will always have magic in it if you simply train your eyes to see it. I hope your daddy and I do a great job teaching you how to train your sparkly blue eyes.
Loving you always and forever my sissy girl,
