Three


Three years ago at 12:06 am, my darling daughter came into this world. She and I worked so hard together and she came so very peacefully. When I was pregnant with her, I knew that it was going to be another girl. I was so very scared to have another girl, so scared that she would look like her big sister.


She is such an amazing little person. I am so lucky to be her Mom.

My darling Amelia,

Happy Birthday baby girl. You are getting so big. You are in between baby and little girl. You so desperately want to be a 'big gril', yet are still my baby. You only stopped nursing 9 months ago, yet you insist that nursies are for babies. You ride your bike like a mad woman and love swimming lessons. You are becoming so independent, but still want your Mama.


You sing and dance, something you've done all of your life. I love the songs you make up. You also make up names for everyone. You know what you want and when you want it. No one can change your mind, you have to do it on your own.


Your best friend is your brother. You love to play Princess Leia or Ahsoka or Padmae. You also love to play school and can't wait to start preschool in the fall. You love your baby sister and give her lots of hugs and snuggles.


You melt my heart daily and have your Daddy wrapped around your little finger. I am so very blessed to have you in my life.


I love you baby, forever and ever and ever.

Love,
Mama

I just adore every single photo of you in labor/giving birth. Whoever took photos for you captured every single precious, priceless moment, and you must feel so blessed for it.
Happy birthday to your sweet baby girl!

Beautiful girl. Looks like it was a sweet water birth. (I never had a water birth but always wanted one.)
