Here we are again – another year has passed and what an amazing year it has been watching you growing up.
Something happened this week, which makes me want to hug you even tighter than I do every day and cherish your every move. You will understand one day when you’re older.
Over the past year, your strong personality has certainly come to the fore. Your mood swings too – I think you may have inherited this from Daddy. However, your smile, laughter, and wit (which happens later in the day) compensates for that! Even when you are miserable in the mornings, you are actually quite funny and that makes me smile.
You have been a confident and independent child since day 1 and I love to see how these qualities continue to develop.
Three years ago God Blessed us with a gorgeous daughter who changed our lives forever and today we are celebrating that blessing!
This past year has been a major adjustment for you (and us). One moment you were our little baby and the next you were a Big sister. You’ve grown so much and your strong personality has just come to light this past year. You surprise us each and every day with the things you say, the complements you give us and the way you make us laugh.
Happy birthday to my gorgeous little princess! Alyssa, you have brought and continue to bring so much Joy in our lives and we cannot imagine a life without you.
The past 2 years have gone by in a heartbeat but as they say time flies when you are having fun! It feels like just yesterday that we were patiently awaiting your arrival – 11 days after your expected due date, it seemed like forever before you made an appearance but you were definitely worth the wait.
As we watch you learn and grow each day, our hearts fill up with gratitude and we look forward to see what the future holds for you.
