This has to be one of my all-time favorite photos of you. To me, it captures those beautiful eyes and that grin that says, I am probably about to make some kind of silly face.
You don't know how much I love you and how much alike we are. I guess that is why I get so frustrated by you sometimes. We are like two peas in a pod.
What I want you to grow into is your beauty. You are so beautiful on the outside, but I want you to develop your inner beauty too. I want people to see not only your outside, but your kindness as well and I tend to get frustrated when you don't show that beauty that I know is inside there.
I know that as the years pass, I will look back on these trying times we have with a fond remembrance of when you were little, so I am concentrating on trying to breathe more and relax some and take things in stride.
But no matter what, I love you, little girl. And you will always be my little princess.
