you blink, and they're two

It's coming. Odessa's second birthday is just next week and I'm starting to feel that gentle tug of emotions. I realize I'm acting as if I've gone through this numerous times before; celebrating your child's birthday, but I remember this exact same feeling creeping up on me this time, last year. I thought it was just because it was her first birthday. But no, here it is again.

It's hard to describe. It's happiness, joy, love, excitement, proudness and yet a little bit of sadness. Sadness only because she is growing so very quickly. Before I was a parent, I heard about how fast kids will grow, and to tell you the truth, I didn't quite believe it. Well, turns out it's true. Very true.

I'm trying to start a tradition of writing my kids a letter on their birthday every year in a very special card. I found Odessa's, this year, over at Sarah Jane Studios. I think it is very appropriate.
