Happy Birthday Anna Sophia!

2 years ago today you came into this world. It was a beautiful and extremely hot day. We went to the hospital anticipating your arrival and you didn't disappoint. You were so perfect in every way except for being so very tiny! I knew from the moment they put you in my arms that you were the very reason I was put here. You were and continue to be my life.

You have been such a blessing to me and your Daddy too. You light up the room any time you walk into it. Your smile and laugh are enough to brighten the darkest of days. When you cry, I want to cry! You monkey around and we all crack up. Just tonight at dinner you wanted dessert so you weren't going to eat. Knowing how you like to make people pretend cry I told you if you would take a bite I would cry out of shear joy. You took bite after bite just to see my antics with crying. Other times when you know I am upset and really crying you come over to make sure I am K! You are such a sweet girl and I thank God for you each and every day!


So Happy Birthday baby girl!!! I am proud of the little girl you are turning into and I am proud to say I am your Mommy! Thank you for being the best of me and your Daddy. Thank you for aiming to be the best that you can be and for caring about others even at such a young age. Thank you for being YOU!!!


My hopes and dreams for you are simple. I hope that you can find happiness in the simple pleasures around us daily. I hope that you can find a man as good as your Daddy! I hope you become a woman of many talents, much confidence and a strong sense of who you are and where you are going. I hope that you always know, no matter what, your Mommy and Daddy are here for you and will do anything we can to make your world a better place. I hope that you can learn from your mistakes and grow from them. That is a tough lesson but an important one. I hope that you become the best person that you can be. That you trust God and love him unconditionally. I hope that you can find something that you love to do and find a way to do it. I know that you will be an amazing child and woman. You already are and I can't wait to watch you grow and learn, change and expand your horizons, love and play and just be yourself. You are a true delight and I am truly blessed to be your Mommy!!!
