A Message to my 5-Year-Old Daughter on Her Birthday

Five. It's been five years since you screamed your way out of the womb. Five years since you cast a magical spell over my very being. Five years since my heart felt connected to another human in a way that is indescribable.

Who you are today simply takes my breath away. You are caring, loving, concerned, nosy, curious, polite, stubborn, excited, snuggly, kissable and just a good human being. I am not sure how you have become who you are today, but it amazes me!

Your face is light and your voice is the sweetest sound.

When I tell someone about my daughter, the pride I feel is so great, it is overwhelming. You are my daughter...this wonderful human being is my daughter, my family, my life. I am so proud of you today, proud of who you are and who you are becoming.

Five. Five incredible years of ups and downs and living life. Five years of pure love.

  2. Wow, this letter is really emotional. You have used incredible words for describing your love for your daughter. You know my sister just gave birth to a lovely princess. Now she wants to rent a space for an event in Austin. Actually she wants to host her elder son’s birthday over there.
