My Baby, My Butterfly
To my child,
May you never be afraid to fly.
May you always keep the innocence that you hold at this young age.
When you are out on a branch and you feel it shake, have faith that it will steady itself again.
Enjoy your individual beauty and uniqueness; never wish that it would change.
When you fly go in a direction that will take you places to happiness, don’t be distracted by those which will not.
I look at you now knowing how blessed I am, to have the baby, the butterfly, I have.
May you spread your wings and fly without doubt.
Above all else know that I love you, my baby and my butterfly, and that you always have my open wings to fly back to.

Can you believe she was once this tiny?
Portraits for her first birthday invitations… sigh… time sure flies.
