Letters to our Daughters

My Peyton,
I am finally ready to write about my sweet youngest girl.
You are kind, funny, smart and oh so loving.  
When you came into our lives, you introduced us to an entire new world.
My eyes were opened in ways I could never have thought possible.  I was so scared for you,
and was so worried.  Once I held you in my arms I realized how blessed I was to have you.
I know life will be rough for you at times, and my heart breaks into a thousand pieces when I think
about that.  But then I see your smile, and it helps me see that you will be okay.
You are so independent, always doing everything for yourself and never wanting to ask
for help.  I love that about you.  I also love that you fit into my lap so perfectly still, not many
people are lucky enough to be able to snuggle their (almost!) 6 year old like that.

I can't believe you are going to be 6 in just a couple of weeks.  Where has the time gone?
These years have flown by.  I have to thank you for what you have taught me.
I am truly a better person for being your mother.  I've also met so many
wonderful people that I never would have known if it wasn't for you.  
I hope as you grow up you always know that I am here for you.  I will
protect you and love you for the rest of my life.

You love your sisters and look up to them so much.  I love to see
the three of you together (when you aren't fighting, of course!)
You are getting better at reading every day.  I love seeing how much you have
learned in Kindergarten!

I love you so much sweetie.
Love You,
