Five


My sweet Amelie
I love the way you smile
I love your witty comments
I love that you ride your bike without training wheels
I love it when you tell me things
I love that you love your little brother so much


I love that you hold my hand when we go for walks
I love it when I come to kiss you goodnight and you say that you want me to stay here all night
I love that you know more than me about the garden
I love that you love watching Dirt girl
I love your beautiful long hair
I love your big brown eyes


I love your wonderful drawings
I love that you write mum on most of them
I love that you are still my little monkey
I love your shyness at times
I love your nervous smile
I love your attentive stare when you are somewhere new


I love your temperament
I love that you are so like me
I love that you still love me to the moon and back fifty seventy million times
I just love you

Happy 5th birthday my beautiful little girl ♥

Oh Cathie ... I'm lost for words ... there's none that express the absolute total beauty of your Darlings. Head shaking! Imagine, me stumped, head still shaking ... re-reading!
Ahhhhhhhh got it ... you say "I love that you are so like me" ... that's the key Darling, that says it all, your absolute beauty brings more and more.
Rambling, I should have stayed speechless .♥
