Difficult to believe that you joined our family just two years ago, Sophia. However, in these two years you’ve captured our hearts and we cannot imagine our lives in any other way than with you playing the central role. You’re a beautiful person inside and out — your baby blue eyes and golden curls charm those around you and let you get away with just about anything. There is nothing more heart-warming than to see your curls bounce as you run around while playing. You’re also patient and perhaps you’ll work hard and make a significant impact on society when you grow up. You’re confident and know what you want and while that may present your Papa and me with challenges, we know that will become a positive as you grow older. Most importantly, you’re above all, gentle, sweet, and compassionate. You are concerned about everyone’s well-being and share your love openly. I hope that you forever stay as open and warm and avoid the traps of becoming to self-absorbed, cynical, and self-important.
Your smile and happiness bring perpetual sunshine in my world. Happy 2nd Birthday, Sophia!
