My Precious Eden

Dear Eden,
Today you turn 2 and it seems like just yesterday we were on our way to the hospital, not knowing what to expect with your arrival! From the first second you were born you have brought more joy to my life than I could ever express. You have made me into a better person. Watching you grow, your first smile, getting your first tooth, laughing for the first time, sitting up, rolling over, scooting, your first word to know listening to you sing a while song, learning to walk, listening to your stories, watching your imagination run wild, seeing how gentle you are with Ella, all these things have brought a new sense of meaning to my life. You are growing up into such an amazing, smart, funny, beautiful little girl. Everyone wants to be around you! I wouldn't change the fact that I get to be at home with you all day long one bit! I love you so much Eden. I hope you always remember that. And I hope you always remember just how important and loved you are, not just by your daddy and I, but by all your family and friends. You are SO loved Eden. You are so lucky to have such wonderful grandparents and Aunts and Uncle and friends that are so willing to drop anything to come and spend a little time with you. You're out on a date with your daddy right now and I hope you always keep such a strong relationship with him. He loves you so much Eden. And Ella, she just always wants to be where Eden is! She watches you with such loving eyes. You are such a great big sister to her. You make mer laugh way more than mommy can, you sing her songs, you play with her, you share your toys with her...thank you for loving her so much. And Eden your Heavenly Father loves you so very much too! He is so proud of the little girl you're growing up to be. He is so happy that you bring so much joy to all the people around you! And lastly Eden, your mommy loves you more than anything. You will always be my special little baby. Thank you for knowing when I'm sad and just coming up and giving me a big hug and kiss. Thank you for laughing at me when I'm trying to be silly. Thank you for treating me like one of your friends! I know that we're always going to be best friends. I am so proud of you for who you are. You are such a good listener and you are so sensitive and you are so loving and kind and beautiful and funny! You make me laugh all day long and I couldn't have asked for a better 2 year old! I don't know how I got so lucky. Eden I hope you know that 2 years ago today was one of the best days of mommy's life! I can't wait for more special days like today! I love you so much!!!
Love you Forever, Mommy
