Rachel told me tonight, "Daddy, I think that for everyone that bought me presents, I should send them a card."
"You mean a thank you card?"
"Yes. If I make the card, will you make the envelope?"
"Sure I will."
This is her thank you note to all of you.
I can’t believe you’re turning 5 years old today. It’s gone by too fast.
I was laying in bed last night thinking, “We only have 3 more cycles of this (5 years at a time)” and you’ll be all grown up.”
Five years used to be such a long period of time. Now it’s just a blink of the eye…
You said to Mommy last night, “I don’t want to grow up!”
I’m right there with you, baby girl…right there with you.
But I also can’t wait to see the young woman you’ll become.
Like I said when you were born…I never knew my heart could be full of so much love.
Happy birthday, my sweet girl.
I look forward to celebrating many, many more birthdays with you.
I’m very proud of Dad…he made this video by himself, with only a couple of calls to his technologist son!
I can’t believe it’s been a year already.??
It seems like just yesterday that I was holding you in my arms for the very first time, and here you are, a crawling, laughing, happy little girl that’s turning a year old today.
Your mother and I are so excited to see what the next year brings for you.?? We love you with all of our hearts.
