happy birthday

my sweet girl,
i can hardly believe how quickly the time has flown. it makes me sad that i am already having a hard time remembering all the little details of your first two years with us.  you truly are the light of my life.  sometimes i try to remember what my life was like before you were here, and honestly i don't know why i even got out of bed.  these days, you and i get out of bed bright and early each morning and share cereal snacks over coffee and milk while indulging in the newest dora the explorer episode...she's your absolute favorite.  I think swiper & boots are probably tied at a close second:)  Your most favorite people in the world right now (there are quite a few:) are: mommy, daddy, your grandmas and grandpas, auntie risa, auntie bethy, uncle's max & michael, miss freda, mister tucker, monica & eric...in no particular order. You really love Dora, and could probably watch it all day if we let you!  You also love to color, count and play outside & on your slide!  your favorite foods are bananas, mac n cheese, hot dogs, pizza, pretzels, and tomatoes.....these will probably change next week:)  you have the sweetest little voice, and sure know how to speak your mind (many times in spanish!).  everyone that has ever met you has left with a smile, you are such a special and unique being.  so smart, and sweet all the same.  it never ceases to amaze me when you can just tell mama needs a big ol hug and smooch...and boy do you deliver.  your doggie kisses are my favorite:)  your sense of humor is hilarious for a person of your age and size.  you have taught me so many things about the person i am, and most of all how to love so deeply it hurts.
my baby, my greatest blessing...happy birthday, i love you!   xoxo, mama

  2. Beautiful and written from the heart. Makes me think of my kiddos, and of course makes me cry! I'm so happy that I have you and Sienna Bienna in my life. Ayden says "Happy Birthday Tena" (It's Sienna, but how he says it. :)
