The last two years have flown by so fast, they’ve felt like two minutes. Yet so much has happened, and you’ve grown up so much! When I pick you up at the end of the day, you always seem to know something new. You’re so smart and funny and imaginative and sweet – I’m just so proud of the special little person you’re becoming. That you already are.
Evie, being your mommy is such a wonderful adventure that can take me from bone-shaking fear to warm contentment and from dazzled wonderment to utter exasperation, all in the span of fifteen minutes. I try my best to treasure every second of it.
This morning I stopped for a minute to watch you play. You were sitting on the floor in your pretty birthday dress, surrounded by books, crayons and Play-Doh-filled eggs, singing and talking to yourself. My heart was so full of love for you and the little family you, your daddy and I have created that I was overwhelmed. I realized what it really means to be blessed.
