Calliope: Six days away from your first birthday

Tuesday, April 30

I saw this video just now and I had to share it.

I hope Calliope isn't afraid to love whatever it is she loves. I hope she's always willing to learn new things and enjoy learning new things even when kids tell her it's lame. I hope no one ever makes her feel like what she loves is dumb. I hope no one ever tells her she can't do something because she's a girl. I hope she doesn't turn into one of those people that is proud of the fact that they don't read books. I hope she has an amazing imagination.

I also hope she knows she can talk to me about anything. I don't want her to ever be afraid to share things with me and I hope she will let me share the things I love with her. I hope she loves some of the same things I do. And I hope I will be prepared for the inevitable eye rolls when she tells me the things I love are old and totally not cool anymore. Haha.

I hope she is able to be herself at all times. I hope she finds someone that likes the same things she does. Someone who likes her for being her. I don't ever want her to feel like she needs to hide any part of herself in order to fit in.

I guess most of all, I want her to be happy. I want her to be comfortable in her skin. I hope she knows I will always love her as much as I do at this very moment, looking at her sleeping next to me on the bed. I will always remember the first time I saw her and how happy that moment was, that day nearly one year ago.

-* Calliope just rolled over, pressed the keys and left a secret message.  :)

I told myself I'd go to sleep an hour ago, so I should probably do that. Good night. ♥
