My Dearest Davi Doodle ~
It’s finally your birthday. You have been looking forward to this since we celebrated birthdays in March. It’s now your turn.
Remember when you turned three and we had a Tangled Birthday for you? All you wanted was for there to be floating lanterns on your birthday. And I searched. And I searched. I even wondered how I could make them myself when all my searches came up empty. And then your Daddy found them. It was one of my favourite birthday celebrations.
Two years later, you continue to be a fan of princesses and that just makes my heart happy. Your career aspiration continues to be “Princess”.
I was so incredibly sad that we missed your official preschool graduation. I really wanted us to have our moment. Our time to cheer you on to Kindergarten. I know that there is so much for us to look forward to. So much in front of us that we will celebrate. So today we celebrate the number 5. Your 5th birthday. We celebrate you.
Five years ago today, the tiniest of spitfires was born. You grabbed hold of our hearts and we were never the same. You bring the right balance of sweetness, defiance, diva, silliness and love into our home every day and you make this life worth it. Even on, especially on those days when I am tired and bedtime can’t come fast enough. Those days when there is more fighting or yelling than we would like. We all have those days. It’s on those days that I crawl into bed and I am remind myself that I will in fact miss “those” days.
Because the truth is, I will.
But today we put on our Birthday Princess Crown and our pretty shoes. We wait for your friends to arrive and we party until the sugar wears off because it is your birthday. There is no where else I would rather be and no one else I would rather be with.
Mama loves you Doodle Bug.
