I remember the night you were born like it was yesterday. It all started early in the morning on January 8th. Day lapsed into night and you greeted us in the early morning hours on the 9th. There are certain things I know I will never forget about those hours like wanting the time to go faster because I wanted to meet you so badly. I wanted to know what it felt like to become a mother and to finally hold and meet the little girl inside of me.
I never could have imagined that the tiny baby I held that morning would turn into such an incredible individual. You continually amaze us with your wit, dazzling smile, kindness, and love for everyone who is part of your world. You fill your days reading books, writing and drawing pictures, and having great adventures with your brother when you aren’t at school with your friends. You tell me that all you want to be when you grow up is a mommy. You take such great care of others that I know you will be a wonderful mother some day.
This year’s letter to Santa sums up your personality perfectly. You had your own ideas for your letter and wrote all the words yourself, only asking for help spelling North and carrot. I hope you don’t mind that I translated your writing into dictionary spelling.
What is it like at the North Pole? I have been a very good girl. I will be happy with whatever you bring me. I think Captain Computer would like a Jack-in-the-Box. I am going to leave some cookies and a carrot for your reindeer.
Even though the years have slipped by and that little baby I held in my arms on the freezing cold and snowy night is long gone, I hope the person you are today never disappears. You are truly a treasure and we will love you forever!
Happy 5th Birthday!
