you are such a gift.
the gift that came to us after the sorrow of loss--a promise of the faithfulness of God.
you bring us so much joy, every day.
watching you grow is a magical thing. you've fallen into a rhythm of living already, and your character is decided and formed and strong.
your little person is so full of life and love and glitter--
so much glitter.
i never knew someone so small could be so opinionated and sure of her what she likes (have i mentioned the glitter?). i love your feistiness and how ready you are to tackle the world and all it brings. i maybe do not love the fact that you refused to say mama until just a few weeks ago, but i admire your resolve. :)
despite your fiery independence, you are kind and sweet and you love to cuddle. and you love to give kisses to all your favorites. a lot of kisses. you love deeply and fully and are so aware of those around you.
i hope you never lose that spirit and determination and the comfort you have in your own skin. these things make you so unique, and a joy to be around. there will be times ahead when there will be those that come try to push you down or take away the spark that makes you thrive. don't ever let them.
because you are gorgeous, inside and out.
you, my sweet girl, are a passionate force in my life and those around you. and i am honored to be a part of your story.
