Happy Birthday, Leila!

Dear Leila,

Four years ago today, after a very, very long labor you came into the world!  You didn't cry when you came out, just checked it all out with your giant, beautiful eyes.  You had (and still have) the face of an angel.

You love to go to the park and fly your kite.  You love your kite so much that you gave it a name - "Toony"

You loooooove to cook! We call you "cheffy" and even though it is usually (always) a bigger mess when you help us cook, we love to let you.

Your favorite shows to watch are "Olivia", "Good Luck Charlie", "Mickey Mouse Clubhouse" and anything on Food Network (but especially "Mexican Food Made Easy" and "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives") 

You are a goofball! You have the silliest personality, and know how to make people laugh!

You love school and ask to go just about every single day.  You love all of your teachers, and have made so many sweet friends!

You love being in front of the camera! You have two poses - the "fashion" pose (hip to the left) and the "style" pose (hip to the right.)  If I haven't taken a picture of you in too long, you ask me to.

You are an amazing big sister!!  You are so kind, and so gentle and so patient with Gianna.  It makes my heart melt to see how instant your love for her was and is, and seeing you two together is as sweet as can be.

You are the sweetest daughter a parent could ask for and we adore you!

Happy Birthday, Leila Mia Bella!  You are a dream come true and daddy and I love you more than words can express!

Yep, I definitely just teared up reading this and looking at the pictures! I guess that means I'll be an emotional wreck when I have kids. I seriously remember the day Leila was born like it was just yesterday! I've never cried soooo much strictly out of happiness before! I love that adorable princess more than life itself! Happy Birthday Leila! Auntie Dana loves you more than words can possibly describe!
