and then she was 6...


from there...
 to here...
here...
and here...
to here...
and going there...
to a lifetime of firsts...
 and discovery never-ending...
and more proud moments than I ever thought possible...
here's to taking after...
but also forging a path as unique as you are...
here's to those bright eyes...
and here's to discovering new reasons to love you every single day. 

Today, you are 6...
sassy, smart, scared
loved like you could not comprehend...

Your arrival brought many adventures...
worries, joys, wonders, sleepless nights, 
"you are my sunshine" on repeat as you (hopefully) fall asleep...

The startling & scary realization that i see so much of me in you...
and sometimes praying so hard to not let that be true...
If only to protect you.

We've blinked and suddenly
here we are. 
and then, she was 6.

You are the best thing that ever happened to me SC...
and I will love you forever & always & no matter what & to the moon & back.
momma
