Happy 4th birthday my love! I'm hoping that you will be able to read and understand this letter in the future. I know right now all you really understand are our smiles, hugs and kisses so I write you this letter...
Many people are intrigued by your name. It is very unique. I have to admit that I didn't like it at first when your daddy suggested it to me, but it definitely grew on me. And Juniper you became. Just as your name is unordinary and one of a kind, so are you. There's no one like you. You're a happy, smiley girl who loves to bounce around especially to music. You're a phenomenal eater. I can get you to try anything. You trust me, daddy and unnee. You give the most amazing hugs, squishy face-to-face embraces, and the wettest kisses (we really gotta teach you not to give open mouth kisses). You are our one and only Juniper.
As your mom, I would give anything to get you up to speed with your development, have you talking, feeding yourself, reaching milestones that a 4yr old "should" be mastering. But just because you're not there (yet), does not mean we love you any less. We love you for who you are. You have caused our family a bit of heartache, stress and lonely times, but do you know what else you've done? You've made our family stronger. Your daddy and I are a team when it comes to raising you and unnee. Your unnee has become a more sensitive, helpful, sympathetic, caring big sister...not only to you, but to others. And you're a big part of that.
As we celebrate your 4th birthday, we celebrate you. We thank God for the little lady you're becoming and we continue to ask God to heal your mind and body. We will always take care of you, my love~
