To My Baby. . .

My Dearest Diva,
Five years ago I could have never imagined what a sweet little girl would bring into my life. I knew from the moment I saw your face you were going to be special.

And now here you are in all your walking, talking, singing and dancing glory. The way that you make grown ups stop and think--and laugh--is something that I think is amazing. You have the brightest sense of humor of anyone I know.

And even though there are times when you drive me INSANE (like the time you washed your hair in the toilet), all of those little things add up to who you are today. And all the money in the world wouldn't convince me to have it any other way.

You are the most beautiful little girl I have ever known too. You're eyes are like nothing I've ever seen before. It's like God created a special color just for you, because he knew you were destined for greatness.

In these past five years, I have watched you blossom from a little baby who thought sleep was overrated into a beautiful young lady with no fear. I hope you never EVER lose that! I hope that you are always willing to take risks, to try your best. And if you fail, you know that Mommy is always there to pick you up and dust you off for the next round.

There are so many things that I want to say to you, and yet none of them seem to do my love for you even a smidgen of justice. But I do love you. And when I look into your face, I can still see that tiny little creature that kept me up most of the night (and peed in my bed) (and puked on me more times than I care to admit). I'm excited to see how far you have come in these short years. And I'm even more excited to see where you'll go in the next five.

I love you so very much, baby.

Happy Birthday!

Just so beautiful!

omgosh, She washed her hair in the TOILET? haha That is absolutely priceless! I'm so glad you appreciate her & let her know. They grow up so very fast & before you know it, they're adults. She's a beautiful, beautiful little girl.
