here's to your pudgy hands and that swoopy little nose.
to your heart-shaped mouth and your dimple on your right cheek.
your tiny toes, perfect replicas of mine,
and your golden curls that tickle your neck.
here's to your new favorite words: "help" and "okay"
and the way you call for me whenever i'm out of sight.
here's to your mischievous laugh and microwaved chicken nuggets,
to countless episodes of sofia the first and your "bink."
here's to jumping on the bed and your giant pink ball,
the way you put your hands up when you can't find something
and how every number is the number two.
here's to pretty plastic beaded necklaces and your favorite colors book,
to playing tag and your happy dance.
here's to you, my sweet and spunky little girl.
and here's to all the details i pray i never forget.
