My Dear, Sweet Sophie Lee - Today you are two years old. As I sit here writing this letter I can hear the sounds of you stirring in your bed, just beginning to awake for the day. In a few minutes you will begin your morning chatter. You will talk to your "Big Bear" for a minute and then you will call out "hi mama, hi daddy" in the hopes that someone will come get you up and love on you. You have these expectations because not a day of your life has gone by where you were not loved.
But, Darling Girl, I need you to know that you were loved well before the time you were born. Your mama Kim loved you too - she loved you enough to know that you needed something she could not give you. She loved you enough to let someone else give you what she could not. And she chose your Daddy and me to be the Blessed ones to be able to love you.
You LOVE your daddy! There is a dance that you do every single night when he comes home from work. You sing the word "daddy" over and over and bounce and dance for a good five minutes - I know it makes his day! You love when daddy gets down on the floor and pretends to be a puppy - it never fails to make you giggle and smile. Also, daddy will ALWAYS play hide and seek with you girls and THAT is your favorite game. You always know he s gonna jump out at you and you cannot wait to see where and when it will happen. And that is my favorite game to watch y'all play.
You not only LOOK just like your daddy, but you and your daddy love alike too. Big soft hugs, sweet tender touches and a fun sense of humor that melts my heart every time!
And I am the MOST Blessed woman on the face of the earth to get to love on YOU!
Happy Birthday My precious, beautiful girl! I love you more than life!
Forever and ever,
