It's an afternoon.  We're in the office.  You are getting into absolutely everything, as you do best.  I tell you "no" about touching something and you turn and just stare me down.

We do this a lot.  Staring contests.  Your strong will versus mine.  It's epic, really. 

But you know what?  I love that you're a mini me.  I love that you are a girl with a strong personality.  I hope I can nurture that while teaching you to be kind and to know when to walk away from a fight that isn't worth it.

Early this morning as I crawled into bed I leaned down and kissed your head and whispered that you have far exceeded my expectations, that you are beyond loved.  Because you are everything I never knew I wanted and more.
