This Girl

This girl.

She stole my heart the moment I knew she was growing inside of me.
She came late, as she was really quite comfortable growing and kicking and making me as uncomfortable as possible.

This girl.

She rocked our world with bad sleeping, colic and reflux.
She left us questioning.

This girl.

She wanted to grow up oh-so-fast.
She wanted to crawl, walk and talk well before I was ready.

This girl.

She has tested my resolve.
She has made me laugh.

This girl.

She has an attitude and will I will be coming up against again and again.
She is smart, with an amazing memory.

This girl.

She has driven me crazy.
She has taught me the real meaning of the word fear.

This girl.

She lights up my life.
She brings me so much joy.

This girl.

She turned four today.
