Can you figure out that riddle? Two years ago today, on my own birthday, our sweet girl was born. It was truly the best birthday present ever, and I don't think I'll ever get a surprise that amazing again in my lifetime.
This little nugget brings buckets full of joie de vivre into our home. She's always up to something, the first of the bunch to get that mischievous glint in her eye and then the first to laugh about what she's accomplished. And this is saying a lot for a girl with two older brothers. She's also the first to climb up onto the sofa with her entourage of stuffys, pat the spot next to her and say "Sit ear" ["sit here"]. When she gets a new dress, she immediately starts to take off the one she's wearing to put on the new one. Same goes for shoes. She blows kisses when we say goodnight, and follows it up with a wave and a "See ewel-ater" [which is toddler-ese for "see you later"].
Happy birthday, sweet girl.
