I love you. I remember when your dad and I decided to try for a third baby. I wondered what you would look like and who you would be. Then you were in my arms, perfect, my third little girl. Right now you are singing a song with only one word- HALLOWEEN. I love that you talk to me now and when you laugh I can feel it and it feels like happiness and home. I know that you get mad at me when you can't have what you want. I understand that you would like to have sugar toast for every meal. I hope that someday all the hard work of saying no to you will pay off in a big way. Like maybe a new car when you are running your own company. Or retirement money since I can't save any due to all the adorable shoes they make in your size (9). I am so thrilled that God chose me to be your mom. Also thank you for falling asleep after school today. I got many many things accomplished.
