Where did my little girl go? How is it that one day you were my little baby and now, you're six? It amazes me how quickly time goes. I have loved watching you grow this year. You have always been fiercely independent, but you have come into your own a lot more this year. It was a rough adjustment not seeing your best friend every day, like you did for the first 5 years of your life, but you learned that you can make new friends and see be friends with your old friends. School has been a fantastic journey for you this year as well. You are such a smart little girl and I'm so proud of how hard you work in school to do your best and learn all you can! Your reading is incredible! You push yourself to do more and more each day. I'm so proud of you. You are also an wonderful helper at home. You are always willing to lend a hand to help with work that needs to be done. I love that you love to help out.
This next year brings more changes to your life. First grade means that you and I no longer have time to ourselves each morning. It means you will be away from me the entire day. You will never know how much I'm going to miss our time together. I love being able to snuggle up and read with you, or play Candyland, or paint nails, or color, or bake. I hope that you will still want to make time after school to do those things with me. I don't ever want us to stop having Mommy/Sunshine time. My promise to you is that I will always set aside time for just you and me, no matter how busy our lives get.
You are so full of life and energy. You tackle each day with such enthusiasm. You may only just be six, but you have such a great sense of who you are and what you want to do.
I love you more than you will ever know my sweet baby girl, for you will always be my baby girl. Continue to live life to the fullest and always remember who you are. There will never be anyone who is a better you than you.
I love you with all my heart.
