Dear Lily {Two Years Old}

Dear Lily,

I remember the day you were born clear as day. It's funny how vivid I can remember each of my birth stories with both you and Ava.  I couldn't ask for a better labor and delivery with you. If it feels like this to have a baby each time, I could have 10 easily. So thank you for that! You were eager to introduce yourself to all of us when you decided to show up the day I turned 37 weeks. I had just been in Charleston seeing your cousin in the hospital just two days before. Thanks too for waiting until mommy was safely back in Savannah before you decided it was your time!

You arrived at 10:22 pm on 12-12-11 screaming your lungs out. I was overcome with joy and I couldn't believe how in love again I was. You haven't stopped screaming since. I often tell people you are like having a set of triplets. You keep mommy and daddy on their toes and you love me more than life itself, always finding a way to touch me or be close to my presence. I adore your hugs and kisses and when you climb on my like a jungle gym. I'll miss that when you're older but I think I may have a few good years still.

Your personality is so different from your sister. You are quite feisty and love to have your way. I wouldn't have it any other way though. Don't expect any other siblings anytime soon. Who am I kidding, you would probably Survival of the Fittest the next kid just to keep me to yourself.

Two years have gone by so quickly and I try to cherish every single moment. Can't wait for this terrible two stage. Sike. You'll probably give me hell. But I love you any way my sweet girl. Happy Birthday!!
