our beautiful girl

I remember the day you entered this world. I still remember holding you for the first time. I held you the closest I could to my heart, your breathing mimicking my heart beat. You were only a few minutes old but I already loved you with every ounce of me.

Your hair was jet black. It laid perfectly on your little head. Your eyes were blue like the sky on a sunny day. Your little body laid on mine. I stared at you, in awe. You were beautiful. Your mouth slowly moved into a smile and showed a dimple. You had that new baby smell that I hope I never forget. I breathed you all in....and fell deeply inlove with the tinest little person.



Now your five. Your jet black hair has turned blonde and your eyes are green. You still have that dimple. It's the same dimple that I see in your sisters, and when I see it I'm reminded of you. You love art and anything girly. You are shy and outgoing. You are caring and loving. You always find the good in everyone you meet and if you love someone, they are truly blessed. Because you love with your whole heart and take your friendships seriously.


Kayla, your the first one who showed me what it's like to have my heart beating outside of me. I love you to the moon and back and I want you to know I'm very proud of you...and a few other things before you grow up.

1. Since you turned five I have watched you grow a little too fast. I know in the world we live in today, it will try to make you grow up fast. But please believe me. You have plenty of time to be a grown up. So, please enjoy your childhood as long as you can. You will miss it when you're older.

2. Always be yourself. I've watched you want to wear something because a friend wears it, which is ok. Just please don't lose yourself. You are you. And perfect just the way you are.



3. Don't ever pretend to be something you're not for someone. A true friend (or boyfriend) will like you just the way you are. You do not need big boobs or a certain name brand shirt or a certain car for someone to like you. A true friend will like you the way you are. Read #2.

4. Friends are invaluable. Some will come and go and some will stay with you for a life time.

5. Always be the kind of friend you want would. Be honest. Be loyal. Be truthful.

6. You do not need to have sex with any guy for him to like you. They will try to tell you that if you love them you will have sex with them. Please believe me when I say they only love you if they stay with you when you don't have sex with them.

7. Don't ever loose your love for God. I love that you love Him so much. I love that you call Him your friend. Please don't ever loose that.

8. Travel the world. There are so many beautiful places to see. This world has so many things to offer. It is beautiful.

9. Don't let trends define you. Read # 2.

10. Continue being a great  big sister. Be their friend. Be their protector. Be there for them. They need you, and one day when you are older you will need them. Friends may come and go but sisters are forever.



11. Love with your whole heart.

12. Laugh. Laugh loudly. Laugh alot. Laugh at yourself.

13. Listen to your mom and dad. I know you don't think we don't know what we are talking about, but just like I realized my parents knew things....you'll realize one day we do too and you'll wish you had listen to us. So, please take our advice. Everything we do, we do because we love you.

14. Do well in school. Go to college, travel the world. Read #8.

15. Being smart never goes out of style. It will take you down a wonderful, successful road.

16. Find a wonderful man who loves you for you. Get married. Have children. Those children will be your greatest blessings. But only do this after you have completed #14.

17. Don't be afraid to speak your mind. Stand up for yourself and others...and for what you think is right. Because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind. (That saying is so true. I wish I'd realized it sooner...so I'm telling you now.)

18. Take pictures. Lots of pictures. Don't ever throw them out, no matter who is in them. You will cherish them one day and be glad you have them.

19. Don't let anyone tell you can't do something. You can do whatever your heart desires. Whether it's dance or soccer or singing. You. can. do. it.

20. No matter what you do in life mommy and daddy will always love you. And you can always come home.

We love you, our beautiful girl.
