Dear Sweet Pea

Oh, my darling Sweet Pea!

I don't even know how to describe you and your personality. Here are some words that come to mind: busy, smart, sensitive, blunt, funny, thoughtful, energetic, high maintenance, joyful, affectionate, and definitely one of a kind.
You love your sisters. You are proud to be one of "The Girls". You're really excited about this Baby Brother thing, and you're already getting him prepared for his arrival with lots of hugs and kisses while he's still inside me.
You bring such joy to Daddy and me. You are a blessing from God, no doubt about it. You came into the world in a bit of a hurry and ever since then, you've had places to go and people to see. We just try to keep up. (Maybe it's something to do with the curly hair?)
And I know you didn't go for my idea about you just staying five, even though I promised you a birthday party even if you didn't go on to be Six Years Old (which, as you point out, is more than a handful).

Well, how 'bout staying six instead? As the poem says:
Now We Are Six
- A.A. Milne
When I was one I had just begun
When I was two I was nearly new

When I was three I was hardly me
When I was four I was not much more

When I was five I was just alive
But now I am six, I'm as clever as clever;

So I think I'll be six now for ever and ever. 
So, think that might work?

Love,
Mommy

Wow! She's that old already? I think I found your blog right about the same time she was born.

I promise to be candid and you can be too. Blogging is best when it's a conversation. Thanks for taking the time to read this post and respond. I enjoy hearing what you have to say.
