A LETTER TO MY DAUGHTER ON HER FIRST BIRTHDAY

June 22, 2020

Dear Emrie,

Everyday I fall more and more in love with you. You are pure magic, baby girl. Beyond our wildest dreams you have completely filled our lives with joy and enchanted us with your overwhelming presence. It’s been so very special seeing the world through your eyes. 

You are like the sun, so warm and bright shining light everywhere you go.  I love the way you communicate-and how you tell me exactly how you’re feeling.  The way your eyes light up when you see your daddy, the way you wiggle that little booty and start to sing to Elmo, the way you sing along to Frozen and the way you get so silly on facetime with your grandparents. I’ve never felt more in tune and connected to someone (besides daddy) before in my life. Sometimes we stare at each other and then burst into laughter at the exact same time. You are such an actress. It’s so much fun being your mama.

Every night as you rest in my arms, smelling like vanilla lavander, I trace my fingers around your face and look at you in wonder.  I constantly tell my self how blessed I am. And as you slumber, I watch you dream. I hope you are dreaming of goodness and the good you will bring to the world and those around you.  I know you are going to do amazing things in this world. I hope you know you can do anything you dream and don’t let anyone or anything tell you otherwise. 

You are so scrumptious I can barely stand it! It’s an honor to be your Mama. Thank you for trusting me, Emrie. It is truly a gift to call you ours. You are filled with so much love and purity and I’m so grateful God chose me to be your Mama and us to be your parents. I love the person you’ve made me. I’ve never been more proud of who I am than now. Being around you gives me a fullness I’ve never felt before. These are the good ole days. We are living them.

Emrie, you radiate rainbows.  You are a unicorn in a field of horses. You’re a cupcake in a world of muffins. You’re a sunflower in a garden of roses.  Happiest Birthday my sweet girl.

Love,

Your mama
