I feel like a little open letter to Johanna is in store on this glorious day!!

Johanna, the moment you were born our lives changed forever. Everything all of a sudden made sense. All the struggles we faced to get to that moment were just hidden blessings. From the moment my water broke at 3:30am on Christmas morning (a week and a day early), I knew you were going to be one of kind! You made your entrance a few hours later and in an instant we became parents. You, my girl, made me a mama! The room filled with tears of joy and pure amazement. You made the littlest cry that only your daddy could hear. After a minute we had to confirm you were ok because it was so soft, but your dad said right away he heard you and you were perfect. But don’t worry, you made up for the quietness in the months to follow ?. We had never seen anything more perfect in our life. A head full of hair and chubby little cheeks. Today you are two and you are still the light of our life and the best big sister around. Your smile fills a room and your laugh is so contagious. Today most of the world is celebrating Christmas but on this day we are also celebrating you, my dear! Happy 2nd birthday to our sweet Joie! We love you!! Xo
