Wishes for Baby

At the shower, the ladies wrote their wishes for Baby Girl. Of course, these will become part of her baby book, and I thought I'd share the wishes here as well. They are very touching and a little humorous.

I hope you learn...
to let loose.
how to laugh at everything.
to drive a stick.
hablar espanol.
to speak a second language.
more than one language.
gratitude, joy, fearlessness, and to love change.
another language.

I hope you aren't afraid...
to be strong.
of traveling.
of the monster in the closet.
of the closet.
of bees.
to love.
of cows.
to make mistakes.
of the water.
of the dark.

I hope you love...
without bounds.
to try new things.  (x3)
to travel.
the ocean.
the stars.

I hope you get...
lots of love and support.
to smile more than you frown.
everything that you ask your Daddy for!
a puppy.
to travel the world.
to visit Patagonia.
your mama's craftiness.
a younger sibling.
lost in new adventures.
a sense of rhythm.

I hope you laugh...
at silly jokes.
at your parents (and with them).
many times a day.
at yourself.

I hope you never forget...
to enjoy life and family.
that your parents love you.
who you are.
that the sun comes out after the rain.
to try everything once.
the songs your mom sings you to go to sleep.
Ohio and New Zealand.
to say "I love you."
to enjoy the little things.
how much you are loved.

I hope you ignore...
hateful words and actions.
those who do not know better.
people and dance in public.
ignorant people.
the mistakes that others make.
mean critics.
the ordinary.

I hope you become...
a kind, thoughtful person.
who you want to be.
a doll.
a superhero.
comfortable with yourself.
a dual citizen.
happy and healthy.
a scuba diver.
everything you want to be.
an avid reader.

I hope you respect...
humanity and nature.
your elders.
life in all forms.
eggplant, even if you don't like it.
the environment.
the earth.
new experiences.
your mommy.

I hope you grow...
into a wonderful, strong, and successful woman.
very old.
to be a beautiful person.
your very own garden.
tomato plants and share them with me.
not too fast!
really long legs.
never (grow) up.
to be tall.

One thing I learned in life is to love what makes you happy and to cherish every moment you spend with your family, friends or love ones because everything that we have now on earth is temporary. Well, thank you for inspiring us with your great art work.
