You also know that your birth was a turning point in my life when I was a very, very wise and boy-looking eight-year-old.
“A turning point?”, you ask?
Because the birth of my baby sister meant that I had you. A sweet little blondie who grew up to be you.
I love you so much. I love hearing your perspective and I think you are who-larious. You are beautiful and intelligent. And kind. And empathetic. And thoughtful. And just altogether incredible.
But most of all? I am ASTOUNDED by the mommy that you are. Taryn, you are incredible. You inspire me.
I love you so very much — to the moon and back, in fact.
And I am so, so very glad that you were born.
Happy birthday, baby sister.
