A Letter to You on Your First Birthday
Kaylee our love,
It is hard to believe that it has been one year since God has blessed us with you. As everyone promised it would, time has absolutely flown. It has been the most amazing journey spending the past year watching you grow and come into your own. You have quite the personality, little bean. You are a little girl that knows what you want. As the saying goes, “although [you] are little, [you] are fierce.”
You are a fast learner and quite the sponge. It is so fun to watch you mimic sounds, words, and actions. My favorite part of each day is watching you explore all of the new surroundings around you, and the sound that warms my heart is your sweet giggle. Despite how tired, sick, or “done” you are with the day, you always manage to let out some smiles.
You make friends, everywhere you go. Saying “Hi” has become one of your favorite things to do, especially to strangers. It is apparent to anyone that meets you how sweet and warm your heart is. You are quite the cutie, but the beauty within you is already beginning to shine.
You will give kisses to just about anyone. No, not anyone, anything. You will kiss your socks, toys, books, and anything you come across, but when it comes to your loved ones, you make sure that when a kiss comes to fruition you make it very rare and equally as special.
Every day, I mean it, every single day, I wonder how I got so lucky. Thank you for filling a void in my heart that I didn’t know existed. You have enriched so many lives already, and I am so excited to continue to watch you grow.
We love you more than you will ever, ever know,
Mom and Dad
