I've just turned one and I have a few requests for my first birthday year. Yes, as your little girl I intend on milking my birthday for an entire year. The first thing I would like to request (for the summer months at least) is that you stop treating me as though I were a premature infant. I promise daddy, that when I sleep at night I will not develop hypothermia. When It's 20 degree outside, I don't need my room to have the heat on. It's hard for me to sleep in a sauna. And may I point out that with it being the summer, and having my heat on (often turned to 20) I don't need three blankets placed on me. I think I'm at more danger of heat stroke than freezing to death. So I beg you to refrain from treating me as though I could turn into a human popsicle at any point during my sleep at night.
The second major request I have is that you stop flinching every time Gabriel comes running out of nowhere in my general direction. Sometimes I like to be tackled into submission while he gives me raspberries. It's really fun. I promise I'm not as breakable as you think just because I'm a girl. Pretty soon I will be bigger than Gabe and beating him up. You just watch and see. I'm one tough cookie.
Finally I would like to request that even with another baby on the way that you continue to spoil me. I have to admit I will be very jealous and will need lots of attention from you. After all, our relationship is special and I don't want it to ever change.
I love you daddy.
