My Sweet Angel,
Today you turned 2, WOW! You may never know the troubles we have overcame these 1st 2 years, at this point I know I have only survived to keep you safe and make sure you thrive. This year we moved from the magical guest house that became our sanctuary when you were only 6 months old, we got our 1st apartment, you have grown so much! You love mac and cheese, apples, nutella, ice cream, dancing, baby shark, visiting friends, ALL the dogs, you have so much sass and spunk already, it blows my mind, MOST of the time you are kind. Today you got your 1st bike and ice cream cake, we went and fed duckies, flew a kite, you had a great time. We were supposed to celebrate you with a party but this year a crazy virus called COVID-19 came and has pretty much stopped the whole country, I hope you never have to experience the world like this, I've never seen any thing like it. To be honest I never wanted to bring a child into this strange land, it didn't feel responsible but now that you are here I know I have to fight harder, make sure you are smarter, teaching you the difference between right and wrong, how to stay strong, and that we aren't here very long. I can't wait to show you pictures when you get older, but until then I will hold you every chance I get, be there every time you cry, and continue to try...
Try to be stronger, braver, more confident, assertive, patient...
I love you sooo freaking much.
You are my world babygirl,
