Dear Brooklyn
Today you turned four.


It's insane.

I can honestly say that three was a rough age.

We tried and tested each other and there were days I wanted to ship you off to grandmas for a few days.

It was a bit rough but I am realizing more and more how those wheels in your head work and how I can be a better mom to you.

You have changed so much this last year. You are becoming a little girl and less of a toddler.

You are learning and growing.

I love seeing your eyes light up when you do something new for the first time.

I love all that you teach me.

Happy Birthday, Brooklyn.

I hope your day was wonderful and I hope your next year will be one of discovering, exploring, and giving.

I love you.

Sincerely, Mom
