I like it that to everyone else you and Livi look identical and to me you look as different from her as you do from Aidan (which by the way, you totally look like Aidan and Livi doesn’t at all). I also like that you know I know who is who.
One of the things about you that drives me crazy is that YOU CANNOT LET ANYTHING GO. EVER (you get that from me and your Dad, sorry). But at the same time it’s what will allow you to go on dates before your sister; no one makes you do anything you’re not ready to. So on the other hand, I like that you stand your ground.
I worry that you think people like Olivia more than they like you. People love you, you need to always love yourself and give yourself some slack. I worry that you and I are so much alike and I don’t want us to have a “difficult” mother and daughter relationship.
I’m so glad you’re five and I’m already looking forward to six. You, Grace Lily, are an excellent daughter, happy birthday Grace-a-lot!
