Happy (belated) Birthday, my love!!!!!
You, Beanshine, are one year old! And you entered your second year of life fearlessly with fun and adventure, surrounded by all your friends, future friends, and family.
At one, you’re a dancer. If anything even sounding like music comes on, you start bopping to the beat.
You’re a joyful girl. You smile and laugh easily.
You’re so loving. The best moment of my day is when you come running at me for a hug and snuggle.
You’re vocal. You’ve got a strong voice, and you aren’t afraid to use it. It’s one of my favorite things about you.
You’re fearless. There’s no couch to high to climb or space to scary to explore.
You: continue to amaze us.
That’s all I need to say. You are amazing. You can do anything and be anything and this year has surely proven that.
Don’t ever doubt yourself. I never will.
And wow, what a year. My heart is full. I have never felt so much me as I have in the past year. I’ve never felt so fulfilled, so loved, so fully pursuing my purpose in life. Being your mom has taught me so much and given me so much pure joy.
But this letter isn’t about me,
Happy Birthday, my sweet girl. You’re a wonder. You’re the smartest, funniest, happiest little person. Your dad and I are so proud and so grateful to have you in our lives.
We adore you.
You carry our hearts.
You are so loved, my Beanshine, always,
