Four years ago today you came into the world and it has never been the same. The day you were born was the best day of my life, after about 4 pm anyway. You were so wide-eyed right from the start. So smug and knowing too.
You had lots of dark hair and little chubby hands and dark blue eyes which never changed color. You weighed six pounds and five ounces, absolutely huge! That is, until 8 pound 4 oz Ella came along...
You brought your whole family together that day. You continued to bring your family closer in the following months and years. Thank you for that.
Thank you for breathing that day, four years ago, thank you for drinking from a bottle like a champ, thank you for laying in my arms all night that first night and looking back at me.
I love you, my tiny first born, my miracle, my beautiful all-knowing old-souled daughter. You changed me forever and all for the better.
I miss you.
