I haven’t been ready for this day. I can remember so clearly the day that I found out that I was pregnant with you. Sitting on the couch waiting for your daddy to come home so I could tell him to news. I blurted out the news as soon as he walking in the door.
I also remember everything about the day your were born. All of that excitement. Your Aunt Sa Sa had snuck into my room and decorated it the night before I was to be admitted for induction. It was complete with Princess crowns.
I also remember the very first time I saw you. You were so alert and wide awake. All bundled up in that blanket.
I have loved every second of watching you grow up into a little lady. You are so beautiful, inside and out. You ask me questions every day about God. You never forget to say the blessing when we sit down to dinner and you try so hard to be patient with your little sister- even though she refuses to talk. I sometimes catch you totally acting like the big sister you were born to be. You love her so much.
You are a Daddy’s Girl, through and through. He loves you so much and you love him. You have a such a bond that at times, it has made me a little jealous.
You love bath time. You are a whiz at the iPad. You hate going to bed. You are sassy and a little bossy.
When I look at you, I see the best qualities that I have and the best that your daddy has. You are a perfect combination of sweet and sassy.
I love you so much, baby girl. Happy 4th Birthday.
