Happy Birthday Josie
And just like that I blink my eyes and you are two years old already.
I spent the early morning with our four guys, setting the table, making breakfast sneaking out for balloons and donuts (Simon insisted on spending his own money to buy you your favorite maple bar) and then we tip toed up to your room to surprise you. You surprise us by being in your birthday suit, your pj's and diaper were on the floor!
You cracked us up by squealing with glee to see us all singing our hearts out for you and you could not wait to get up and celebrate. You whispered to me as we were heading to breakfast, my happy birthday is downstairs.
Your luminous joy and sense of humor are the most amazing addition to this house full of brothers. You do not miss a beat and hate to be left out, and lets be frank you have them all wrapped around your little finger better than I ever will. We are all head over heels for you little lady. Your insane verbal skills and silly toothy grin. The way you try to look over your shoulder and play coy to get a smile. The songs you sing and the sweet hugs and kisses and giggles you share.
You are and always will be one of the greatest gifts I have ever known. You are my girl, my sunbeam, my heart. Love you little JoJo, forever and ever and ever. Happy birthday Jolene Joan-Claire!
