My dearest Lily,

Today is the last day that you will be 1 year old.

By the time you wake tomorrow, you will be 2.

This of course is all bitter sweet to me.

I get sad (naturally) about the fact that time is going by too fast and happy to see what the future years will bring.

This past year you have mastered walking, running and talking amongst so many other things.

You are no longer a baby and you are one of the sweetest and brightest girls I have ever met and I could have never wished you to be as wonderful as you are.

Pai and I love you so much!

Happy last day as a 1 year old my little ratinha sunshine girl.

Love you,

mommy
