A letter for you on your birthday!

My Dearest Abigail,
I can't believe another year has come and gone. We have been so busy learning, exploring and playing that your birthday has blindsided me and I still can't fully comprehend that you are 2 years old. You are truly a joy to be around. You light up the room with your smile and your infectious personality. I am honored and delighted to be your mother. You have become such a little lady over the past year, you really are no longer a baby. You walk with purpose, you talk with amazing clarity and you really know what you want. You are a bit bossy at times and your mood can change at the drop of a hat. You are mommy's little helper, following me around trying to do everything I do. Your favorite chores include emptying the dishwasher, doing laundry, and picking weeds. I can only pray that your helpfulness will last into your teenage years! (Hey, a mom can dream, can't she?) You LOVE to play outside, but you don't really like being dirty which can pose a bit of a problem. You think the 4 major food groups are spaghettio's, fruit snacks, chicken (with dip), and popsicles and you rarely eat your vegetables, but I am going to keep offering them!! You are a little artist, you love to draw and color. To my delight, you are very athletic and have great coordination and strength. You can thank your father for that because we all know you didn't get that from me! You love to read, but you also love curling up on the couch or your Dora chair in front of the t.v. You love The Wiggles, The Doodlebops, and Laurie Berkner to name a few. If it were up to you the entire world would be hues of pink! You are a truly girly, girl....a princess! You have your moments of stubbornness and even downright naughtiness and you like to test your boundaries and my patients! But, at the end of the day you are more sugar than spice and I just can't imagine my life without you. You have taught me lessons I didn't know I needed to learn and you have made me a better person. I am wiser, stronger, sillier, and happier because you are in my life. Thank you for being you! Happy Birthday my little pumpkin head. I look forward to seeing you grow up, but don't let it happen too fast!!!

All the love in my heart,
Mommy
