Stella's Six

today my first born is six.
that's two hands.
that's a big deal.
you are such a little lady now.
you do so much on your own.
you are needing me less and less each day.
i couldn't be more proud of the little lady you are turning into.
and i can't wait to continue to watch you grown and learn.
i am blessed every.single.day to be your mommy.
or should i say mom now.
you let me know when i am embarrassing and when i shouldn't wear something.
and honestly it's a good thing, i need that sometimes.
you take care of your brother like a second mom.
and you are always looking out for others.
i love you so much stella ann.
have the happiest of birthdays.
only ten more years until you will driving!!

love, mom
