As I lay in bed last night, my mind flashed back to last year to the day… to that moment when I first saw your face. You were the most beautiful baby I had ever seen and curled up against my chest, skin to skin…I remember everything stopped. And I just looked at you.
Warmth came over me like I had never felt before…it was the beginning of an unconditional love story between me an you.
The other night you climbed on up and laid your head on my chest. And I remembered with a tear in my eye the tiny little one you once were.
And while I shed a tear looking at the speed of time, I don’t want to return to last month or the one before (maybe I will one day, but ) right now I am so in love with you…at this moment. Somehow every day with you is better than the one before. Somehow you will make me laugh harder tomorrow and love you more than I can possibly fathom the day after.
So I ask, don’t grow to fast, but at the same time…don’t stop because I want to experience all that you will be every day of your life.
Happy 1st Birthday baby girl
With all my love- from the tip of my toes to the top of my head
