Another year comes to a close

Tomorrow, my baby girl will turn five. I cannot believe it. She is growing up and watching her makes my heart sing.

My dearest daughter,

On the edge of the end of your fourth year, you seem to grow a bit each day. You find joy in the simplest of things and I hope you carry that for the rest of your life. You are truly a miracle to me. Of course, you do present challenges for us and while there are days I want to tear my hair out as you scream in frustration, I know that the intensity of which you feel things has it's good side too.

You have such an open heart and love for life. And I hope you never lost that. I love that twinkle in your eye when you announce, "Mom, I have an idea." The love you show your little brother makes me proud, and even though he's a pest at times he loves you just as much.

Much love to you sweetheart.
