[dreamboat annie] | newburyport ma

Heading out this morning into the sun
Riding on the diamond waves, little darlin' one
Warm wind caress her
Her lover it seems
Oh, Annie
Dreamboat Annie my little ship of dreams
{a. wilson + n. wilson}

my girl is 6 today. 6 years of delighting me. 6 years of filling up my heart. 6 years of growing and discovering and laughing and reminding. reminding me how truly blessed i am to be her mother. reminding me that dreams do come true. somewhere in the cosmos she + i were meant to be. as much as i long to hold that sweet little baby she once was, i am so in love with this very moment in her life. it is truly magical. she is such an easy child. she breezes in every morning and twirls through the day and quietly calms the night. she reads books i never had in my hand at her age, she questions everything, loves to have conversations. sitting at her table with pencil in hand she writes, she draws, she counts. the sponge in her brain absorbing it all - beware, this child doesn't miss a trick. she remembers the details. she remembers being in her crib, she remembers her baby house and thankfully she remembers toddling in the yard at my parents house in connecticut. if only for a moment. that warms my heart. oh how i wish my mom was here to help her blow out her candles. if you asked her she would tell you she is here - forever in her heart. my girl has such a kindness about her.
my sweet annie, i am wishing you the happiest of birthdays. followed by the happiest days. always. i love you from the farthest corners of my heart to the deepest part of my soul. you. my dreamboat annie. are everything. xo
