Dear Harper | On Your 4th Birthday

My darling little Harper,

F o u r .

I seriously can't believe I'm typing this. I have such a picture in my mind of you as a baby and how you made our family so much happier that I am having such a hard time accepting the fact that your off to preschool this fall and growing by the second.

Having you brought me the joy of raising sisters and lifelong best friends. You gave Quinn the dream of having a real life baby doll to play with and entertain all day long. You brought me more hugs, kisses, and love than I ever thought I was capable of. You also brought me more stretch marks, but it's ok, kid. I love you.

You are such a feisty little girl. Your memory amazes me every single day and while sometimes it creeps me out just a bit... I really appreciate your grocery list skills every time I tell you not to let me forget the mashed potatoes and syrup on our Target run that day. You are so much smarter than I give you credit for. I've learned I can't make you do things you really don't want to do (cough:cough: learning what sounds letters make). You just simply do things on your own time and as a by product, have made me CTFD about life in general. You make me move at a slower pace and we've both benefited from that.

You test me daily, but it is so gratifying to see you accomplish things and I can't wait to see the big things you've got in store for you. I am so very proud of you bug, and your Daddy and I love you so very much. We hope you have the best birthday ever and I am so looking forward to our tradition of having you sleep with us the day before so I can be the first to see you wake up a year older.


Mommy & Daddy
