three years, pure joy

three years ago today, in about 90 minutes, a tiny person came into my life and turned everything upside down [quite literally as we neared toddlerhood]. she made my smile bigger, she opened my eyes wider, she kept me awake longer, she made me love more than i ever thought possible, she made colors brighter, she made holidays more meaningful, she made my marriage stronger, she gave my life meaning, she saved me from myself, and she showed me the meaning of miracles, life, love, and pure joy.
she knows me in a way no one else ever has. she's opened me to things i never knew existed. she drives me to insanity and pushes me to my depths. she is the beat of my heart, the pulse in my veins, and the energy in my soul.

three years ago that happened. and yet she continues to change [enhance, enrich] my life day after day. my sweet baby girl, born three years ago in lone tree, colorado, has blessed me [us] with the best days of my life.

happy birthday, babyhall. i love you!
