  Dear Rylee,
I cannot believe it has been 12 years already!  It seems like yesterday you were born, making me a Momma for the very first time.

Seriously kid, you had me at "hello"! 

We have been through so much together; some bad, but mostly good.  You have this special way of lighting up a room. Small children are drawn to your fun-loving, tender nature.  Old people are dazzled by your grace and nice manners.  I know you are going to do wonderful things with your life. 

You sure have done wonderful things for MY life.

You are smart, funny, gentle, athletic, beautiful and so much fun to be around. You enjoy doing nice things for others and helping when needed.   As you enter your pre-teen years, you are becoming a lovely young lady.  You amaze me with your quick wit and knowledge of mythology.  You think you are awesome because now you can sit in the front seat in the car.  I love to watch you run Cross Country and play volleyball, fine tuning your skills and striving to be your best.
I feel so very blessed to be your Momma.  I love watching you learn new things about yourself as you embark on this journey of self-discovery. 
You are a great big sister.  Evan loves you to the ends of the Earth, and I know your new little sister will too!

Please know that I will always be here for you and I promise to continue to love you unconditionally.  I will continue to learn from you and cherish every day together. 
I love you to the moon and back baby girl!
Have a wonderful, incredible, delightful 12th birthday! 
I love YOU! 

Love, Mommy
