I want to wish you a very happy birthday my little one!
The very first picture I have of you! You weren’t very happy about it at all.
I will admit it wasn’t ‘love at first sight.’ I was terrified. I just had surgery and I was still a little groggy. I realized that you are now my responsibility. THat scared me.
I was so worried! I didn’t know what to do. I didn’t want to screw you up. You were so small (okay, not that small. You came in at over nine pounds!) and perfect.
The first few days were hard. I didn’t want to break you or hurt you in any other way. But it was during the first few days that I realized that I loved you. The pain was a lot to handle but your snuggles helped (they didn’t fix everything but made me feel better.) 🙂
You were so active! Some days I didn’t know if I could keep up with you! Where did you get all that energy?
It was a lot of fun learned how to get you dressed and playing dress up with you!
You sometimes were just so beautiful I forgot to breathe! 🙂 I am amazed on how perfect you are! How did you become so perfect?
Now look at you! You are just so beautiful! I am so lucky to be your mom. Thank you Serenity. You taught me so much within the last year. I hope for many. many. many more!
I listened to you breathe as you slept. It’s such calming sound. I can’t believe that when you wake in the morning, you will be a year old! (But you won’t be official until 8:46pm CST)
I just want to thank you and all that you do. You have pushed me (and my buttons a few times) but without you, I won’t have even know where my limits are! Without you, I wouldn’t push myself to achieve so much!
Dear Serenity, reach for the moon! Even if you miss, you will land among stars! 🙂
I just want you to know what all that I do it for you and I love you more that words can say. I don’t want you to follow in my footsteps. I want you to take the path next to me and go further than I could have ever dreamed possible.
I love you Serenity!
Until next time…
*I won’t be around much to day, so if you need me, you can email at firstname.lastname@example.org but I won’t see it until Saturday! 🙂
