today you turned two. for some reason i felt different today than i recall ever feeling on yours or estee's previous birthdays. i cried a little bit. i looked at you and thought about how sick you were at just 6 days old. i thought about how close i came to losing you. and it made me a little sad... and happy at the same time. so unbelievably happy that you are here to celebrate your 2nd birthday with us. so grateful that i still get to kiss that little dimple on your bottom lip. so blessed that you are so smart and funny and beautiful.
happy birthday to my little monie. you have taught me more than you will ever know.
i love you.
