Happy Birthday Lauren!
Today you turn five years old. Five years ago you made me a mom, and I can’t thank you enough for that. I remember holding you for the first time and KNOWING you. The minute I met your daddy-o I met you. Your presence was a part of our relationship from the start. And it only took 4 months after we got married for you to make it clear you were READY to be born. Thank you so much for opening up a whole new world to me. Sure, it’s a world where a commercial for Disneyland can reduce me to tears and a world where I’m always worried about you being safe and happy and having enough princess gear. But I love this world! I love being your mom!
I can’t believe you’re already FIVE! You’re a star in kindergarten with your crazy reading skills. I love how much you love to learn! You are such an amazing sister to Ben. Even though he has gotten to the age where he is into ALL your stuff ALL the time you still love him and call him your best friend. I really, really hope you two stay best friends… even when you’re annoying each other. You are just such a cool kid and I am so grateful you are mine. Happy Birthday Princess! I LOVE YOU!!!!
