Happy Birthday to my TWO YEAR OLD!

By Kate |

Dear Little One,

I can hardly believe it’s been two years since I first saw your beautiful little face. I wished for you and dreamed for you before you were born (seriously, I wanted a girl so badly and felt very guilty about it throughout my pregnancy!) but I never imagined you could bring me so.much.joy. I am still amazed every day that you are my little girl. I have a daughter… a beautiful, feisty, athletic, affectionate, loving little girl.

Did I mention you’re feisty? Because you are, little one, and it’s a trait I already admire in you. I just hope we can get that biting issue under control before it’s really socially unacceptable.

I think every day about how I want you to grow up, how I want to raise you, about my hopes and dreams for you. Above all, I want you to be happy. I want you to continue to be strong and believe in yourself.

Please know that no matter what you do, who you are, where you go… I will love you. Forever and ever.

Happy Birthday!
