My sweet sweet girl,
You are three years old today. I’m not going to say it’s bittersweet. It’s not really. I love you more and more every day so to see you turn three is just a celebration of how much my love has grown for you.
one day old
As I nurse and snuggle Asa, it’s hard to imagine that my big grown up girl was ever as tiny. Yet, I occasionally get waves of memories about my baby Lydia. I’ll remember how your feet touched the rocking chair as I nursed you. I remember you stretching like a little rubberband when you woke up. I remember your hair, your ears and your little bitty mouth. And although I’d love to rewind time and hold my baby Lydia again, I could NEVER EVER be more excited about who you are today.
one year old
I adore every new word that comes out of your mouth. I cherish every minute we spend together. I’m excited about exploring each new day with you. I can’t wait to see how you develop and learn and grow at every stage. My heart is full as I see you learn to be a helper, a giver and a thoughtful girl.
two years old
I know you won’t remember your 3rd birthday. But I will. And I pray that the love your Daddy and I have for you will be a foundation to support and encourage you your entire life.
Happy Birthday to my sweet sweet baby girl. My new three year old.
I love you,
