My dearest Liberty,
September 9, 2008 you came into my world with just one push. My sweet girl who I was just sure was a boy. We were all so surprised when you were born and Seth got to see if he had a brother or sister. Upon seeing your umbilical cord between your legs he proudly proclaimed, “It’s a brother!”. I looked and chuckled and said, “No buddy, that’s a sister”. He said, “I get another sister? Awesome!”.
Your birth was so amazing and I felt as if you were leading me for months before you were to be born. You told me your name, you helped me keep you safe as you were being born. You are such a little miracle and I am so grateful for you.
You are so adored, I want you to always remember that. Your big brother and sister love you so much. You are so much fun to be around and so much fun to have in our family. You are such a great big sister to Elliott and love him so much. One of Elliott’s first words was “Bib” because he loves you so much. You love playing with your Sissy and Bubby and are always so excited when it’s time to go get them from school.
You have a fiery personality and are always ready with a smile. You are the friendliest of all of my children. Every person you meet is your friend, they just don’t know it yet. There are people in this world who truly never know a stranger – you are one of them.
I love snuggling with you, singing with you, creating with you and reading you stories. I absolutely adore playing Hi-Ho Cherrio and Strawberry Shortcake Memory with you. Some of my favorite times right now are when Elliott sleeps and you and I get Mom and Libby time. You love to sew and are getting pretty good at keeping the fabric straight on the machine. You also love singing and learn songs so quickly. Your favorites are Moves Like Jagger, Dynamite and most recently, The Healing Incantation from Tangled. I love listening to you sing, whether it is a real song or one you’ve just made up, it always makes me smile.
Between your sweet cheeks, darling smile and beautiful blue eyes, it is VERY difficult to ever tell you no.
Happy birthday to my darling girl. I had so much fun celebrating your day with you. I’m sorry we couldn’t have your party on Saturday because of your fever. We will have so much fun doing it next Saturday my sweet Princess.
Love you so much sweet girl,
