My Dearest Little Girl,
Tomorrow, you turn 6. First, however, some of my favorite pictures throughout your 5th year.
You, my love, are stunning. You’re beautiful, and your smile lights up a room. You’re inquisitive and creative, strong for your 6 years. While your brothers are content to sit around playing on their tablets, you’re outside. Always outside. Swimming, running, playing, riding your bike. A constant blur of colorful, wild motion.
You are also a feisty firecracker, which we’ve been working on keeping the explosions at a minimum. Because when you explode, everyone else quickly follows. You’re relentless when you want something, inconsolable if things don’t go your way. 5 has been a challenge, particularly the last few months. I’m excited to move on to 6. Above anything else, however, I love you. So very much.
Happy birthday, baby girl!
