To my baby girl:
You are 2!!!!!! Your birthday was last Thursday but I refuse to acknowledge the fact you are now a big girl. Thus why it has taken me 8 days to write your own little entry. You, my love, are a pistol. Your daddy and I just spent the last 2 hours, (past bedtime), listening to, MOM! MOOOOOOOOOOOOOhhhM!!!! Awake! Awake! over. over. and over again. This is a reoccurring theme in our evenings.
I love you more than words. You absolutely give me an indescribable giggle-joy. You truly are a gift, and I will always see you that way. You might commit an offense against B, W, Dad or me, but you quickly say you are sorry, give kisses and do the same thing over, and over, and over again. Just like your mama.
You are funny. Have I mentioned that before?? You do and say the most hilarious things, truly. I know, I know, every parent says that….but you do! Daddy and I can’t wait to see who you become. At 2 I would say your life will not change others, or you will do something great, I believe you will change the world. You are THAT determined and fixated on the result you want. There is no compromising or distracting you.
You hate facial hair…but don’t we all? When you are really charming, you will say, Is that SO!? after everything someone says. Adorable. You are my baby girl, and I am enamored. The highlight of your turning 2 is most definitely your endurance in the fight against diapers. Only you are terrified of holes with water in them, so I have been cleaning up toddler urine in really awkward places.
Ok, so there is a second highlight: your innate love for babies. You are obsessed. You would have been the most loving big sister. I know that. But maybe God is saving those mommy skills for your child or others our good Lord has in mind. I trust Him, and know He will make something beautiful with your precious life. In the meantime, you are the sweetest daughter! I am so overjoyed He chose ME!?! to be your mama! I am truly relishing each moment. Tantrum or not, I love it all the same. Happy big bad birthday sweet girl. I am crazy for you! xoxo
