Happy Birthday Sweet Sofie

My Sweet Sofie, 

I almost can’t wrap my head around the idea that you’ve only been with us for 6 months.  You bring so much joy to our lives.  You are unbelievably smart, funny, stubborn, and opinionated.  You love attention and there is no shortage of people willing to give it to you.  You thrive in the spotlight.  You give and receive love freely but appropriately, which is important.  You are routinely stringing 2 or 3 words together, and saying please and thank you is one of your talents.  You are ready to potty train, but I am not.  I love the few baby ways you’re hanging onto.  All too soon you will be a full fledged preschooler.  You are an amazing girl and your potential makes me excited for the future.  You are the perfect fit for our family.  You bring out the best in us.  You drive us crazy with your persistence, but I remind myself that will serve you well in the future.  I thank God for you everyday.  I was born to be your mommy, and you were born to be my baby.  Happy Birthday my sweet girl.  I couldn’t love you more.
