It’s a couple a weeks overdue, this photo tribute to my precious baby girl. May has turned out to be an insane month for our family, but that is another post entirely.
I can hardly wrap my brain around that fact that I have a two year old daughter. A lot of days, I can hardly wrap my head around the concept of “daughter” alone, never mind TWO. But two she is.
23 pounds and 33.5” of (messy!) blonde hair, blue-eyed spunk and personality that tries my patience and stretches my heartstrings.
Erin Elizabeth….nothing on earth could have prepared me for the wonder of you. Your sensitive spirit, your empathy to Seth’s hurts, your attitude, your energy, your never-ending fearlessness. You are so special, so unique. So difficult to parent, so very easy to love.
So many changes have come in your second year, and I know it has been rough on your little psyche. Your little brother or sister growing in mommy (yes, still) has made it even harder for me to parent you and attend to you in the way I would have liked. I hope you are no worse for the wear.
I’m so thankful for you. My life is infinitely better (if not sleepier and messier!) for your presence. You are my gorgeous girl, my Lucy Lou, my sweet beana girl….
