Oh my sweet baby Hollis,
Two years ago I got to the hospital at 5:30 in the morning scared to death to have surgery but so beyond excited to meet my second baby girl. I couldn't imagine what you might look like or be like.
You looked nothing like your sister. You had a head of dark hair. You were such a calm, sweet baby.
I couldn't believe I had been blessed with two beautiful girls. I still can't believe it and I thank God every day for blessing me so much. Your birth was so great and I was so thankful for that! You have made our family complete!
Your sister has loved you from the beginning and you IDOLIZE her. Ya'll are BEST friends! You fight and fight but at the end of the day you always hug and kiss and say "I love you" without being prompted. She's the first person you want to see in the morning and the last person you want to say goodbye to at night. You can't stand to be apart. Y'all already have a bond that I hope will never be broken.
You love to play with baby dolls. You also usually always have some kind of jewelry and a purse with you and you love those high heeled slippers to wear. You are SO good about keeping your bow in. You never pull it out which shocks me.
You like to read books. You love for me to sing at night. You always demand "song" after "song" after "song".
You are just sunshine in our lives. I can't imagine my life without you in it. I love you more than I can even put words to.
Happy second birthday Hollis Barrett! We love you SOOOO much! I can't wait to see the little girl and the woman you will become! I know you will be amazing!
