Almost 5 | 5 on 5 Photo Series
It’s hard to believe that it’s almost been 5 years since you were the 6 pound little girl, blinking up at me and ready to face the world. Those early morning hours were filled with emotion, possibilities, hopes and love. I was only at the tip of the iceberg of understanding the force of nature you would become.
Now you’re on the verge of 5 so it’s rather appropriate that the first 5 on 5 photo series of the year is about you. My little girl of 5, who faces the world with an incredible energy. You have a strong will. While some try to tame that will, I do my very best to strengthen it to help you face the obstacles of this world. I have no expectations of you, my girl, other than to blaze a path that you believe in and to treat every encounter as a blessing, a lesson and an opportunity.
Take any opportunity to express yourself – through the colors you wear to the feelings you feel. I love that you still care about what mommy thinks, but more importantly, I want you to feel comfortable in your own choices. Yes, even if it means you walk around in a tinker bell dress and wings.
Live every day with laughter and light.
I hope you see the good around you even when it’s easier to live in the dark.
Always, always dance freely. Allow yourself to follow where your heart takes you and find adventures every chance you get.
You will always be the bright eyed girl who was born with her eyes wide open. I love you to the moon and beyond. I love your spirit, your will and your kindness. You’re going to be 5 soon and I feel like the years are going by too fast. In truth, there’s still so much of life for you to discover. Almost 5 has been amazing!
