When you were younger you were kinda of a scaredy cat.
You didn't want to do anything by yourself and even if we were with you you were still hesitant.
You were also kind of a klutz.
You ran into things and tripped over your own feet.
Until recently you couldn't even jump off the floor.
And I never thought you would learn to ride a bike, even with training wheels.
But now you are way more coordinated.
And you are getting so brave.
You are surprising me all the time by doing things I never thought you would do.
Even a simple thing like jumping off the couch into a pile of pillows and blankets is a big deal for you. It's something that you wouldn't have done a year ago.
I love seeing you try new things and becoming more sure of yourself.
I love watching you experience things for the first time and watch your face light up when you realize that it was fun or exciting.
I am so glad that I am your mom.
I love you so much.
