Dear Brynn, your second birthday letter.

Dearest Brynn,

Here we are another year later, time to write your second birthday letter. How could this be that you are already two??? You would think I would get used to this or this would get easier on me ....you know this whole you getting older business. ..but it doesn't.  We have been at this mommy daughter business for two years now and still, still you are my little baby.  I don't think that will ever change.

I can still remember your birth like it was yesterday.  I think that precious day will be forever imprinted in my memory. You were so perfect, every single little inch of you.  We often look back on old pictures and think back to those newborn days, your daddy and I.  So much has changed, yet so much of you is the same.  You are still so attached to me, so needy yet very independent. I can see my baby disappearing right before my eyes, your little chunky cheeks shrinking, and your little body getting longer and leaner with each passing week. Ugh, what I would do to be able to bottle you up and all the little features.  Sweet girl you are growing up, becoming more of a toddler with every blink I take.

Brynn, sometimes I wish I could just freeze time. Make it stop.  Just hold on to these precious little childhood memories forever.  My heart yearns that you will forever love me the way that you do right now.  In your eyes I am everything, the center of your whole world.  I never want to forget the way you look at me, the way you call out to me from your carseat that you can't reach me, and that you need hugs.  The way you wrap those little arms around me and say hug me! or tighter tighter, squeeeeze!  The way your little voice says wuuub you and the sweet little smooches you place on my lips before we place you in your crib at night.  You will never, ever know what you do to me, how you  make my heart swell with the more love and joy then I ever knew was possible.

They tell you that you do not know what love is until you have a child, and those words could not be more true.  There are not enough words or ways to ever tell you how much you mean to your daddy and I.  It's just impossible.  This love is truly deeper than I could have ever imagined.

Thank you Brynn, for making us parents.  Thank you for your love and all the happiness that you bring into this little family of ours.

We love you to the moon and back baby girl,
Mommy and Daddy
