Happy half birthday, Tatum! 🎉
My little girl marks the exact halfway point between her fourth and fifth birthdays today. She is undeniably smart and mature for her young age, yet in many ways she is so childlike and innocent. I cannot even begin to imagine her making a cross county trip via Amtrak within the next few months…which is exactly what her brother did when he was that age. The courage, strength, and resiliency of my children blows my mind.
No matter how much I miss Tatum when she’s at her ‘home away from home’ I cannot help but feel grateful. Our family survived and remained intact. We came home– both to our city and our house. That prospect remained uncertain for a very long time.
Precious Tatum, my sweet daughter, I love you so much. Every day you make me proud. We all love you to the moon and back.
With infinite love, gratitude, and respect,
