Lulu is 2

Two years ago today I was laying on a hospital bed exhausted and weak and completely overwhelmed with joy! I held my little girl for the first time! I remember my father coming up to the hospital and picking up my 5.15 pound little beauty and saying, "She is perfect. Absolutely perfect." That is all he said. Over and over. His comment echoed my thoughts exactly she was and is perfect.

There are not words to describe my feelings. It is nothing short of a miracle to watch that tiny creature grow. She went from being a tiny tiny baby who could barely hold her head up (she did hold her head up the day she was born) to now she is a running, jumping, talking, dancing, full of personality little girl! I find something new to marvel at each day. Everyday she does something that completely catches me off guard and makes me smile. It might be a new word, a new conversation ability, an act of great generosity from one so small, an act of comfort as she runs to her sister, it might be how big her smile is or how bright her blue eyes are. There is no end to the things to marvel at while watching a baby grow into a toddler, a toddler into a little girl.

Her favorite things are ice cream, swimming, going to the park, anything pink, Tinkerbell, dresses, shoes, and anything Daddy is doing.

I love her more than I knew one could love. That is all I can say.

I love her.
