Today is your 1095th day on this spinning marvel we call earth. From where I’m standing, the sun has smiled and laughed more often and the moon has danced with an extra lilt in her step these past few years. I think it’s because you’re here. You make your daddy and I laugh and cry on a daily basis. You are our miracle.
This is the letter I wanted to write. Unfortunately, due to technical difficulties it took me all night to add music to your slideshow. So, instead of a birthday letter bursting with all the love I most definitely have for you, I am going to regale you with . . .
. . . your life in Facebook updates.
Today Katie stroked my face and said, “I love you mommy. You’re so pretty. YOU HAVE BIG TEETH.” Um, thanks?
Katie: is THAT Father God? Daddypotamus: um… no. That’s Joe Lieberman. [awkward silence]
Katie has noticed I like a few mint leaves from the garden for my morning tea. Today she did it for me . . . only she used grass.
Katie is into licking things now. She just licked my foot.
Apparently Katie loves food as much as I do. Last night she prayed that I would not forget the Chipotle burrito I promised to bring with us to the zoo.
My daughter brought us both bibs for our mid-morning snack. I look like an idiot, but she seems pleased.
Took Katie to my chiro appt with Jim Bob Haggerton. She wasn’t on the schedule but she asked him to “just” her and he obliged. THEN she asked him to “just” her babydoll! Baby Conner got the full workup. BEST CHIROPRACTIC OFFICE EVER!
Day 2 of not letting Katie snack all day in hopes that she will eat at meal times. Now she is licking the veggies I’m trying to wash.
“It’s boom boom in the sky. Scared Katie.”
Literally sitting on the edge of my chair waiting for my little girl to wake up. I want to play!
Took Katie to look at Christmas lights tonight. She demanded “More snowmen!” “More reindeer!” “More pigs!” Pigs???? I love my daughter ; – )
My two-year old is mooning me!!! This is NOT something that goes on in our house, so how did she know it would be funny?
Me: Katie do you know your middle name? Katie: Mmmm hmmm Me: What is it? Katie: MILK!!!
Sharing a cup of peppermint tea with my little girl.
I love that when Katie begs for peaches it sounds like “pooch! pooch!” Glad I’m not touchy about my weight : – )
Taking a bath because Katie wet MY pants!!!
Me: how much money do you have? Katie: I have three and a hundred, six and a mountain money. Okay?
Now for the slideshow!
My prayer today is to be gifted with thousands and thousands more days to dance around the sun with you, hear your laughter, and bask in your beauty. Happy birthday, my love.
