Today my first-born turns five and I decided to write her a letter that I hope she will cherish forever. Happy Birthday Taylor!
Before you were born we imagined who you would look like, whose personality you would have, and what kind of person we hoped you would be. You have totally exceeded our expectations and are more than we could ever imagine. Being your mom is one of my greatest achievements and I love you so much! I have watched you grow from a little seed in my stomach to a beautiful girl with big beautiful eyes filled with so much promise. As you turn five and look forward to starting school soon, I have noticed how much you have grown and are becoming mommy’s big girl, and I look forward to sharing many more special memories and watching you grow and mature even more. I thank God for choosing me to be your mommy.
