happy second birthday sweet girl

My Dearest Kate,

At this very moment two years ago you entered the world. In the early morning hours of the day I meet you. I was in love from the moment I held you. I could not take my eyes off you. You were mine. A sweet little girl. A dream come true.

Your daddy and I often joke that you knew we had fun plans for the day and you did not want to miss out. You wanted to be there for our breakfast plans and kept me from stocking up the house with groceries. Two years later you still come along for all our fun. You are our entertainment on Friday nights and my faithful shopping companion. Target is no longer the same without out you!

I know in my heart you are one of the biggest blessings in my life. At times I am unsure of what I have done to blessed with you. Other times worry fills my heart and soul that you will be taken away from me way too soon. Why? Because you seem way too good to be true.

I love your story telling, dancing, singing, and empathy. I am tickled pink when you rock, feed, and love on your babies. I love to watch you sleep. You make me proud when you ask to read more stories and remember to say please and thank you. You melted my heart the other night when you repeated back the four things I always say to you when I lay you down to sleep.

At times I might seem angry or frustrated. I might raise my voice or shake my head in disbelief. But it's never because I don't' love you. I will always, always, love you.

And my sweet girl you will always be!

love with all of my heart,
