Happy 5th Birthday, Zoe and Ella!!

How do I love you, two?
Let me count the ways.

I love you on your very best ....
and very worst of days.

I love to see you laughing,

and dancing in the rain.
And even when you lose your shoes, 
I love you just the same.

I love to hear you singing.
I love to see you smile.

I love the way you take each day in your own unhurried style.

I'm happy when you're happy,

and I'm sorry when you're sad.
And even though it may not show, I love you when you're bad.

How do I love you, two?
Well, now, let me see ....

I love the way you act so brave when you fall and hurt your knee.
I love to watch you sleeping, tucked away in dreams,

I love to hear you whisper all your giant plans and schemes.

I love the way you wear your pants with the front part in the back, 
and the way you walk around sometimes with your head inside a sack.

I love to see you deep in thought. 

I love to watch you play.

And though I'm sure you both will never know,
I love you more each day.

How do I love you, two?
It's impossible to say.

For if I had a million days and time enough for all the praise,
I couldn't tell you all the ways ....

I love you both, so much.  (words by P.K Hallinan)

Happy Birthday to my BIG Five Year Olds!!
You two make my heart so happy.

I love your creativity, your kindness, your sensitivity and your sense of humor.  I love every single piece of who each of you are.

Keep shining Ella!!
Keep shining Zoe!!

Have a WONDERFUL Birthday!
XOXOXO  mommy ~

Happy "Birth day" to the parents of Ella and Zoe.....Every child deserves parents that not only love but truly TAKE CARE of them as do you two. Continue to enjoy the journey of "parenting" those little ladies.
