365 days of izo - day 253 - as long as I'm living, my baby you'll be

Dearest Izo, 
With every little milestone you reach I am both proud and heartbroken. You my precious tiny one have all my love. What a privilege it is that I get to spend all my days with you.We went for a long walk today and lay down under the willow tree and watched the branches dance in the wind. You were so full of glee and wonder, squealing and laughing. We watched birds flying by and said hello to kids walking home from school. Anyone who looks at you walks away with a smile. You infuse every moment of every day with so much love and happiness. Even when you're pissed off and I am beyond exhausted, deep deep within I am so proud of your strong willed nature. You demand what is rightfully yours. My little lioness.
