Happy third birthday to my dear sweet daughter. I can’t believe it’s been three whole years since I held you in my arms for the very first time. And I can hardly remember life without your joyous presence. You are a beautiful, independent, creative little being and have brought more joy to this family than you will ever know. You are our sunshine. You are our little “Trixie-Lew-Who” and although you are no longer two you will always be our baby girl. I don’t want you to change because I love you just the way you are now; with your big blue eyes, blonde pixie hair and vivacious spirit that seems too big for your little body. But, I am excited to watch you grow and become the remarkable person that I know you are destined to be.
You are stubborn at times, like your mom. And you speak your mind. You have such a nurturing soul and I love watching you feed the birds and our little stray kitty. It warms my heart to hear you worry about them being ‘so cold’. I love the way you hold my cheeks in your little hands and look right into my eyes when you want to be heard. And I love when you sing. I love that you want to be a mom when you grow up and I know that wherever life takes you, you will bring happiness. You do a great job at keeping up with your big brothers and they adore you.
There are so many things that I wish for you in the coming years. But for now, I wish for you to have a wonderful day filled with tea parties and crafts and snuggles and stories and songs. I wish you happiness and adventure. And so much love.
