Birthday Girl

Dear Princess.
Happy Birthday baby girl! You are officially 4 years old {on April 20} and run the house!
I love everything about you.
Your messy hair.
Your dirty face.
The way you put your hands on your hips when telling us stories.
The way you sneak cookies and then tell me "Don't wuh-wy Mom. I'm doin' nuffin."
I love spending my life with you.
If I could keep you this age forever, I would do it in an instant.

*I love you forever.
I like you for always.
As long as I'm living, my baby you'll be.
Dear my friend Val.
You are the bestest birthday cake maker in the Universe.
If I could get you to make us a different cake for the rest of my life, I would die happy.
And very fat.
Dear family.
I love you.
I love that we came together during this very difficult time to celebrate the birth of my precious baby girl and made her feel special even though we are all hurting.
Dear Daddy.
It has been 16 days now since you went to Heaven.
We miss you.
Princess is a very lucky girl because she got her very own angel for her birthday.
But the day just wasn't the same without you here with us eating yummy cake.
Dear Blog Readers
Thank you for putting up with me.
I'm just so frickin sad and I miss my Daddy.

What a nice gift for your daughter when she is older! I love that you love her dirty face and messy hair. My youngest is our first girl and she is 2. I too am embracing the fiery and messy hair! And her face seems to always be dirty :) It fits her adventurous personality!
