Oh my girl, what a year it has been. How quickly you have blossomed from babyhood to fully a toddler and barely even that any more. You are so fully yourself, different to each of those blessed to make up your family, and yet you belong. I am honoured by your generosity and undone by your spirit and astounded by your wisdom. A million million Birthday wishes to you.
Be true, be bright - you cannot be too intense, my love for you is big enough. You are loved as you are!
Your smile, nose wrinkled, eyes dancing, golden curls flying, face alight; you are a glowing flame, or the light caught in a prism, or air itself smelling of Summer. What you are, I will never fully grasp. Rainbow daughter, you amaze me.
