Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday dear Lyla, happy birthday to you!
A day filled with a pink giant 2 shaped helium balloon, cake, presents, new dresses and grandparents was how you chose to spend your 2nd birthday.
Today you turned two, my beautiful girl and you were very excited about it. I think you are still a little young to fully get the concept of birthdays but you certainly understood that today was all about you and that it was very special. You used your newly acquired pincer skills, honed by peeling lots of bananas, to open cards and tear the gift wrapping off your presents. Your delight at having happy birthday sang to you all day and the look of sheer joy on your little face as you watched the sparkler on your birthday cake were things I will hold dear for a long time.
Here’s to the the next year of your life and whatever it may hold, I can’t wait.
Happy Birthday baby girl, I will love you forever to the moon and back.
