Oh My Dear Baby Girl,
You have changed so much this last year. Looking at your face I see that you are no longer a toddler but now a little girl. You know what you want and how to get it and have always been so independent. You showed me just how grown up you were when you didn’t even need to give me a hug on your first day of school.
You always surprise me with how quickly you learn things and warm my heart with your laughter and smiles. You have been happy since the day you were born. No one believes your father and I when we tell people you were born smiling!
You have such a huge heart and teach me how easy it is to love every day. I can’t imagine a day in my life without you and look forward to watching you grow and grow and grow, as you like to sing to me. (She has a song that she sings about growing bigger every day. I think she learned it at church because she sings about praying God as she’s growing bigger and bigger.
Which reminds me of how you bring me closer to God. You always show us how simple it is to love God and I thank Him every day for the borrowed time I have with you, because as every year passes, I know you move closer to when you will be old enough to be on your own. Which reminds me that I need to enjoy every second of every day.
I love you Zoe!
Happy Birthday Baby girl, even though you always remind me that you aren’t a baby anymore, you will always be my baby girl!
