From the moment we saw you, we were in awe. (Partly because you were a girl and I was sure I was having a boy.) You screamed. We cried. You came home. We wondered what we should be doing with you.
Everyday you taught me to be patient, to think of others first, that changing diapers isn't that bad and sleep isn't all it's cracked up to be. A smile can change my day. A new tooth can spell disaster. A Mommy can make everything better.
Today, you've been with us for two whole years. It seems like we've always known you. It seems like you were just a baby. You're a big girl but you'll always be my baby.
Happy Birthday, Big Girl! And many happy returns of the day. Every year you get older and smarter and prettier and stronger.
And every year marks the day you made me a better person.
