Growing in Confidence

Dear DD1,

I beam as I watch you. Seems like during the past few months, you've started to bloom. You've always been my shy one - cautious, reserved. Lately, I'm seeing you starting to venture out of your comfort zone a little more. With each step beyond yourself, you gain enough confidence to take another step. I am so proud of you!

You walk just a little bit taller. Your step is just a little bit surer. Your chin is just a little bit higher. I never should've worried for you. You are young. There is still a lot of room for growth. You'll grow into it and even beyond it. You simply have your own pace. I need to respect that. Maybe a little nudge here and there. A helping hand along the way. A comforting hug to run to when things get hard. I will be here. Always proud of my sweet darling girl.

Forever your mommy.
