Today you should be three.
You’d be closer to kindergarten than birth.
You’d be talking clearly and up a storm.
We’d have library days and play dates and oh so much fun.
Instead you’re saving lives.
You’ll never move a day past five days away from the day you were born.
I promise you baby, I’ll work every day to make sure other babies live to their third birthday and beyond.
Today is for you mega cheeks.
