Happy 3rd Birthday to my darling little girl! I can’t believe you’re already so big, but I love your independence, your creativity, and your spirit…even when it causes us to butt heads because I know it will serve you well in the future. You are the light of my life, and I don’t know how I ever enjoyed a moment before you were here and filling the silence with your song and laughter. You are simply amazing in every little thing you do, and I can’t say I love you enough to express how my heart surges with joy just watching you play and discover and grow. Happy Birthday, Anya! Mommy and Daddy love you so very much.
