It’s been a year since we first met. I still perfectly remember your nervous body shake when you entered this world. I can still remember the feel of your warm body against mine. Your soft, quiet cry made the moment surreal. I fell in love with the way you touch my soul.
At age one, nothing changes between us. You and I are a tight bond. Being inseparable, we will make a positive difference in this world. You are the oat milk to my matcha. You are the baby to my shark. You are the daughter I’ve always dreamt of. You’ve lit up my world with those tiny fingers of yours. You forever have yourself a spot in my arms.
I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for being such an easy - going baby. You made our first parental experience SO ENJOYABLE. You sleep through the night like no other baby. You managed to latch on and then eat solids with a super tight tongue (we are releasing your tongue tie in September.) It is incredible how your little brain develops so quickly and brightly. You make everyday special for your mama and papa. You are a special kind of special.
You now walk and you “talk.” Being super greedy, I pray for two VERY strong guardian angels to guide and protect you every second of the day/night. My desire for you is to love your Lord wholeheartedly.I hope you choose the right words at the right moment. I wish for you to remain bold and brave when you face difficulties in life. And when you need a break, it is OK to take one. Stay the kind soul that you are and you will continue making people smile. The world deserves to know more about a girl named Josephine Yael. The faith I have in you is bigger than the water in the ocean. You are out of the ordinary!
I love you so much,
