She is my sunshine, my only sunshine, she makes me happy, when skies are gray. I have sung this song to my baby girl every night since the day she was born, almost three years ago. Every day she astounds me with how much she is growing, her sweet nature, her love for babies and animals, her independence, and her creativity…OK, I could go on forever, but you get the point. I am certain if you have children you also know the feeling, she really is my “sunshine”. I love her so much it hurts and there are times I want to scoop her up and run far and fast from anything that may make her the slightest bit unhappy….but I am realizing she is going to make her own way in the world. I can’t always hover and protect her from everything. Sometimes I have to let her be herself…her glorious, creative, loving little toddler self. Her third birthday is less than one month away and it is so very bittersweet. I am so proud of the child she is, but long for her to stay my “baby” forever at the same time. Her invitation design was finished yesterday and ordered…and this was my inspiration!
This year, we will celebrate with the bright colors of Pink and Green and an ADORABLE turtle theme. She loves all animals so very much, and fell in love with the tortoises at the Miami zoo, so when I saw the Lilly Pulitzer plates, I knew they would be perfect! She talks about her party and her turtles, and I am so thrilled to help her celebrate. Her invitation design will be posted shortly!
