Happy birthday baby girl!

I want to wish you a very happy birthday my little one!

wpid-20140925_234754.jpg 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.

wpid-wp-1443148645918.jpeg 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.) 🙂

wpid-20141122_201135.jpg You were so active! Some days I didn’t know if I could keep up with you!  Where did you get all that energy?

wpid-20141202_142106.jpg It was a lot of fun learned how to get you dressed and playing dress up with you!

wpid-20150331_175737.jpg You sometimes were just so beautiful I forgot to breathe! 🙂  I am amazed on how perfect you are!   How did you become so perfect?

wpid-20150917_210422.jpg wpid-20150923_110835.jpg  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 but I won’t see it until Saturday! 🙂


Leave me your thoughts - I would love to hear them!
