In light of Cecilia turning one, I thought I would share my letter to her.
Happy first birthday to the beautiful little girl who has been the perfect addition to our family. Your big blue eyes and huge smile light up a room while your spunk and perseverance are unmatched. My wish for you is to stay strong, wild and full of life. May all the stars in the sky be only a small sampling of the dreams in your heart. You are loved beyond belief. I’m so very lucky to be your mama.
In one short year you have traveled across the country and across the world taking each trip in stride and being the perfect travel companion. You have been to four weddings and sadly, your grandfather’s funeral. You have learned to stand, to dance, to clap, to crawl and to fight back to your big sister :) You are strong, you are beautiful and you make me so proud.
I love you.
