- a letter to my three year old -


Dearest Ellie-

Today, my baby girl, you are three years old. You are growing up so fast, but we are enjoying every minute of it. 


Ellie, you bring so much sunshine and light into our lives, I can't even put it into words. Your smile absolutely lights up a room. Your laugh is like music to our ears. Your cries when you are sad or upset tear at our hearts. We love every single part of you. 


You are so smart, and quick witted. It's so much fun to watch you learn. You're shy and sensitive like your momma. Passionate, but dramatic like your daddy. You love music and dancing and anything and everything girly. You are absolutely perfect and I want you to always, always remember that.



You love your daddy so much, but right now you are a such a momma's girl. You're my little buddy...my sidekick. You tell me all the time that I'm your best friend. I know this will change as you get older, and you realize all the cool things that your daddy can do. But for now, I am loving how much you want to be with me.  


 Happy birthday my sweet baby girl. You are the light of my life, the joy in my heart. I love you to the moon and back again. You are my sunshine, my snuggily buggily, my perfect little girl. I love you so much!
