hard to believe that this time three years ago i was heading into labor and some of the best moments of my life. you have been such a blessing to us sweet girl and we cherish every day with you.
tonight before bed we said this rhyme together.
“when i have said my evening prayer,
and my clothes are folded on my chair,
mama and papa switch off the light,
i'll still be two years old tonight.
but from the very break of day,
before the children rise and play,
before the darkness turns to gold,
tomorrow i'll be three years old…
three kisses when i wake,
three candles on my cake.
a goodnight kiss for the two year old
to send her to sleep and to dreaming.
and blessings to the three year old
who'll climb out of bed in the morning.”
from the birthday book.
sweet dreams elodie. tomorrow you'll be three!
