I can’t believe you are six. All parents say that kind of stuff…but it is shocking really.
I have been telling you that I want to keep you at this age forever; I love you at this age. You are kind, compassionate, and the world’s best big sister to your brother. You are still as passionate as you used to be, although you are starting to understand that sometimes the right answer is to serve others instead of always getting what you want. You are always willing to serve your brother and I love that about you. Everyone tells me that you are so introspective for your age…maybe you have a bit of an old soul.
You are growing Dayla, changing, in the most beautiful of ways. I love watching it. I tell you almost every night that “If God lined up all the little girls in the whole world and told me that I could pick any daughter I wanted, I would still choose you.” It is true. You challenge me and grow me in a way that I could never have grown by myself. I love you so much.
Love you forever,
For your birthday you chose to go out on a date with me. You have always been a bit of a “Daddy’s girl” so this surprised me; I treasured it for sure. You and I went out on a date for sushi, I asked you a couple questions to try and remember you at this age. I had to hide the video camera as you are not too fond of it still. I love dating you, and I sure love you kiddo.
(The first question was “What is your favorite animal?”)
