This week you turned two years old. I get so emotional just thinking about it! It is hard to put into words the amazing joy you bring to our lives. Children are an amazing gift from God, but we think you are an extra special little angel that he blessed us with.
Everyday with you is a blessing and an adventure. We have loved watching you grow from a baby into a little girl this year. Your verbal skills continue to astound us. We basically carry on full conversations throughout the day. You know what you want and how to ask for it! We are working on using manners and polite words instead of making demands. That will probably be a work in progress for a long while to come. You love art so much. You did not get that from your Dad or I, but we love watching your creative side. You are definitely fully left handed which is also unique from us. We paint, use sidewalk chalk, color, bake, pretend daycare...non-stop fun!
Your babies are still so important to you. It is so sweet to watch you care for them so tenderly. You kiss on them and sing the lullabies that I sing to you. I can't wait to see how you will be with your little brother. I think you are going to be an amazing big sister. You don't play with toys too much. You would much rather be doing what I am doing or playing outside with your dogs. You will spend lots of time in your room by yourself, but you mainly read and play with dolls.
There are so many milestones that I worry about before you hit them, but you never cease to amaze us on how well you will take to the change. Two recent ones are sleeping in a big girl bed and drinking from a cup with no lid. I thought both would be so rough, and you did them amazingly. You love your big girl room and tell us daily how happy it makes you.
Your smile and zest for life are contagious. We pray that God continues to shape that special heart because we know he has amazing plans for you. Thank you for your unconditional and constant affection. You really are and will always be our little princess. Happy Birthday Sweet Mia!

I will post pictures of the "big girl room" and her cowgirl party very soon.
