My sweet girl, where to begin?
Let's begin with my love for you being fierce and unmovable, strong and sweet and completely engrossing. In you, my first daughter, I see everything that makes me proud to be a woman. Proud of your strength, your determination, your stubborn streak that cannot be broken which makes me nutty but that I secretly love. Proud of the way you tend to your siblings, mimicking my efforts and repeating my words, always watching and learning, taking in the world around you with slight hesitation but complete wonder and awe. You are a force to be reckoned with and I love that you fight for what you want and believe. Fight to be heard in a world of noise, fight for what you want, love, feel, have. You are passionate and strong, silly and sweet. You are my daughter, and you make me ache with pride in who you are choosing to become.
Happy 7th birthday, Munners.
