Happy Birthday Freckle Face Strawberry!

Happy Birthday My Freckle Face Strawberry,

I remember the day I had you, how you looked just like your brother, how I was NOT sure what I would do with a "girl".... how you took all of about 2 minutes to have everyone wrapped around your little finger :) You came early (or course)- I should have known then you had your own agenda ;)

How much FUN it is (or was) to dress you (now you seem to have your own style). I remember being in denial about the color of your hair, there was NO way I would have a red head :) But now, if your hair changed I would be so sad as that is who you are.. you are my little red head (complete with temper) :)

I remember how sad and excited I was when you turned one, how I swore I would not let the years fly by.. you would always be my baby if I had anything to do with it! But how excited I was as you were turning into this little person right before my eyes, someone who I would cease to exist without.

I love how curious you are,

How funny you can be, how much you have taught me about myself (like messes like this are ok..lol)

I love your smile, it lights up a room, your laugh is contagious, and your voice... lets just say it is

very hard to stay mad at you...

I love the fact that when you are asleep, I can still see the baby in you (and pray I always will)

I thank God every day that he blessed me with you,

to keep me on my toes :)

to melt my heart...

to remind me how precious girls are...

But also to remind me of how in every little girl.. is a little of her mom :)

Happy Birthday my sweet little girl, for 3 years you have blessed my life and there is not a day that goes by that I don't thank God for you. I pray that your life will be all that you want it to be, that you will always know and love God, that your life will be filled with whatever it is your heart desires, but that no matter where you go or what you do, that your mom is always here for you!

I love you!
