“The day that you were born was one of the best days of my life,” Tina wrote. “I was really praying and pushing your mom to have you on January 4 which is my birthday. I really wanted you to share my birthday, but like your auntie Solo you decided to come when you were good and damn ready.”
“Knowing you and your personality now, I realize that you needed your own day because you were such a queen and you are so very special!” She added. “You can sing dance, play basketball, play, volleyball, paint draw, sculpt, sew, write poetry, write songs , , create, act , play the piano ! I could go on and on. Because there’s really nothing that you can’t do.”
Tina showered her granddaughter with praise, writing that Blue Ivy is “funny and beautiful and graceful , Kind , and so smart.”
“I could not ask for a better granddaughter Ms. Blue Ivy Carter! I could not be more blessed , grateful, and completely in love with another human,” she concluded. “You truly bring me joy!!”
