My Baby is 12!

Dear Taylor,

I cannot believe that 12 yrs ago today, I was blessed with a daughter. You decided yourself on March 22, that it was time for us to meet face to face. You  were a healthy 9lb 3oz baby girl! My family was complete. Ryan was just over 2yrs old and now I have you. What more could I want? Nothing at all.

Watching you grow has been amazing. The things you’ve accomplished, I couldn’t be more proud. You’re a great student, and you love sports, you’re level headed, and you’re compassionate. You’re not a girly girl. You’re definitely  a tomgirl, like your mom. I’ve had many people say you’re a mini-me. We do have a few similarities, hopefully you’re okay with that!

Of course things haven’t always been perfect, but how boring would that be! (ha ha) You are such a good person with a kind heart. I’m very proud of the young lady you’re becoming. The only thing I ask of you is don’t grow up too fast. I can’t handle it 🙂 I thought it would be forever before you were 12 and getting ready to go into Jr. High. Apparently that time is here. You will always be my baby girl, my Tater-Tot (you can thank your brother for that one since he couldn’t say Taylor when he was two!)

I love you to the moon and back and to infinity! Happy 12th Birthday Tater-Tot!!!


Your Very Proud Mom

  1. What a beautiful letter to your daughter. She’s so lucky to have you! I always say that perfect is boring, too! 🙂 There is nothing like the bond between a mother and her daughter. Have a happy birthday celebration!
