birthday letter to my little girl ~ 3

3:16 PM Posted by Roo

My precious little girl,

You are the sunshine in my life. Your blue eyes dance with happiness and mischievousness. Your smile can turn the frown of a random stranger upside down in a heartbeat.


You are now 3. Three years ago I didn't know how I could love another child as much as I love your brother. Any doubts I had were erased the moment I saw your beautiful face. I will never forget the moment I looked at you for the first time.


You love to read. Some days I feel like all we do is read. But that's okay. You're gonna be a smart cookie with a love for reading and that makes me happy. You love trains and dinosaurs as much as you love babies and stuffed animals. And your favorite? Mickey Mouse and happy cows. You love gymnastics and you love to dance. You will dance in circles some days for what seems like hours. We always have to have music on in the van. Most of the times it's the Chipmunks CD to which you know almost every single word. You can sing, too. I mean, really sing. I love to hear you sing along with the music when we're running around in the van.


You have a strong will and there are days when you test me (boy do you test me!) but I'm glad that you are not easily swayed. I pray that strength will carry you through your school years and into adult life with your head held high. I see you taking life by the horns and not taking no for an answer. Oh and the other kids in school? I don't see you letting them push you around at all.

Sweet girl, may I share something with you? That spunk, sass and all-or-nothing attitude you have? I wish I had it too. Maybe then I wouldn't have let people hurt me the way I have. But you? Use it. Embrace it. And take crap from no one. Because you deserve the best. Always.

I am so happy you belong to me and that God trusted me with your life. I will always love you. Nothing will ever change that. Because no matter what your choices are? You will always be my little girl.

Hugs and kisses. Always and forever.
