To my dear sweet daughter....
Today is your six month birthday. I can't believe how much you've grown in such a short amount of time!
Six months ago you were a tiny ball of sleepy jello. You struggled to peep your eyes open at me and could do little more than cry and flail your arms about. I was amazed by your tiny little everything.
But today... Today we played on the floor. You were sitting up and reaching for toys all on your own. You were laughing and smiling and babbling at me. You hammed it up for my camera and tried to take your own "selfies". You reacted to squeaks and rattles and got excited when we read Peek-a-boo Forest. You stood and walked toward me while hanging on to my fingers.
I'm in awe of the things you've learned in such a short time. Of the strength you have in your tiny little limbs. And most of all, of your ever growing personality.
I am so lucky to be your mom. I am privileged to watch you grow and learn. I am excited to know that I get to help you discover this world.
You amaze me each and every day and I am so thankful for you, my perfect, precious gift from above.
Happy 6 month birthday my sweet Maddie-me. Mommy loves you so very much!
