3 Years Ago

3 years ago someone wonderful came into my life.  Although 3 years ago was the first time I saw her, I knew she was a permanent part of my life. 
She was/is loved by her whole family.
She had a mohawk that I tried and tried and tried to get to lay down.  When it finally did I think I cried.
She has a contagious smile and eyes that speak volumes.
She has been a major blessing to me that past 3 years.
I love you monkey.  You are so special. 
You have always been a monkey.  When I was pregnant with you your sister said that there was a monkey in my tummy, she knew better than I did. 
I don't believe you have ever stopped moving.
When your tired or need comfort you twirl your hair or my hair and I love it.
Your favorite color is yellow, when your sister is around she convinces you it is pink.
You are a climber.
You are the best snuggler in the world.
Our bishop once said about you that your spirit is just to big for your body.  It's the best way I have heard to explain your personality.
I love you so much and I am grateful for my opportunity to be your mother.
