Dear Ellery Jane,
Wow did this year just fly.
I look at you, sound asleep in my bed, and I still see remnants of my newborn.
Seven years ago you emerged on the scene, eager to take your seat at the table.
Life instantaneously became more interesting with you in it.
You are full of big words and big ideas.
You are passionate.
You are hilarious.
I am so proud of the person you are becoming.
This year will be full of change. We talk about that a lot don’t we?
Do me a favor baby girl- keep talking.
Keep using your voice to tell us how you feel.
Those feelings are real, they are valid and they deserve to be heard.
I can’t wait to watch the next twelve months unfold for you.
Thank you for the happy you bring to our family.
Happy birthday my beautiful girl.
P.S.- Your favorite part. I gave you a sneak peek earlier this week.
This year’s birthday song.
