Happy 2nd Birthday to my sweet baby girl!!!
You are sitting right next to me on the couch right now watching a cartoon, rubbing the satin edge of your blankie between your fingers and sucking on your poppy. Your nose is stuffy from your chronic cold and your hair is in your eyes because it's so long now! Daddy is sitting on the other side of you asking you if you want to go to the store with him to get some goodies to make you a special breakfast. You just said no so matter a factly:). We all laughed.
Knowing that yesterday was the last day of you ever being one, we made sure to soak it up as much as we can. I let you literally soak me with a giant squirt gun in the backyard for over an hour. Your eyes got a wild look of excitement as you chased me around the backyard all while shouting out a Tarzan cry, "ahhhhhhahhhhh." It was awesome.
I love you so much sweet Daisy Love. You are my best little friend and you have my heart wrapped around your finger. Yesterday we cuddled on the couch for nearly a half hour because you weren't feeling well. You haven't rested on me like that in over a year. It was a priceless way to close the door on year one and I held you tightly rubbing your back and brushing your hair away from your face. I was praising God for you and the amazing blessing that you are in my life.
I pray that your 2nd year is a year of fun and exploration. I pray that I can continually impress upon your heart the wonders of knowing Jesus. I thank God for the joy that you have brought to my heart. I have so many new wrinkles in my face from smiling and laughing so much with you and I am okay with that:). You are beautiful. You are silly. You are friendly. You are our little Princess.
Now let's get ready to celebrate you with a cowgirl themed party!!
We love you SO much baby girl!! Happy Happy Birthday!!
(stay tuned for Daisy's 2 year portrait post!!)
