Oh baby. Today you’re two and I’m sure before I know it you’ll be 22. 22 in this crazy scary world–It’s hard to think about what your life will be like in 22 years, so much in this life is out of our control and the changes from now to then are beyond my imagination. When you turned one we celebrated your whirlwind life and blossoming personality. Today, as you turn two I look into your future and hold my breath as I see your personality full-blown and carefree. Because you will be a strong girl in this crazy world and we couldn’t ask for anything more.
There are a few things though, that you need to know and remember as you navigate your life.
Tessa, I love you from the bottom of my heart. Daddy and I will ALWAYS love you, no matter what. There is nothing that will break that stream between our hearts and yours, we will always be your #1 fans.
I think you are the most beautiful girl in the world. Your relentless go get it attitude, and your compassionate soul have shined through since the day you were born. When you set your mind to something, you work at it until you accomplish it and I hope that never leaves you. You are strong, don’t doubt yourself.
Watching you care for your babies with such concern, attentiveness, and love has been my daily delight. Your kind heart lives beyond your years. You know when to be somebody’s rainbow and when to be the rain. Above all else Tessa, if you continue lead your life with a kind heart and a positive go-get-it attitude like you have so far, you will be wildly happy. Your heart is true, follow it.
You’re perfectly beautiful. Your blue eyes sparkle like the oceans waves, and your face brims with joy and hope. Your button nose is so delicately round and your hair the most gorgeous shade. Your smile perfectly cheery, and your laugh contagious. Beautiful because you’re real, beautiful because you are you. You’re perfect the way you are.
It may be hard to remember this, but don’t ever forget it.
You make me so proud to be your momma.
Happy Birthday baby girl!
