To my sweet one year old

Littles,
You are ONE today.

I can't even begin to tell you how much you mean to me. The moment you were laid in my arms I swear my world forever changed. Everything clicked. THIS is what life it about.

You were a peanut. I couldn't believe my ears when they told me your weight. 5lb 7oz.FADSC_0301-2

Tears streamed my eyes uncontrollably. A foreign feeling filled my heart. To love someone I just met so much, I couldn't even bare it.

September 14th 2011, just hours shy from my birthday, you my baby made me 'mommy' and it was the greatest gift of all.

my birthday
Days flickered by into weeks and then months. I sat amazed every time you learned something new.

I tried etching it in my memory so I would't forget. I took photos of everything... your little fingers, your smiles, your frowns, toes, and your nose... and of course those beautiful blue eyes.

The year wasn't always easy. We had our struggles. But, the overwhlemed new mommy tears just made me stronger, the sleepless nights were more than worth your morning smiles, and the learning curves just made me wiser.

You remind me daily of what really matters in life. Every night I soak you up. I love being able to hold you in my arms while you sleep. I thank God you are healthy, happy, and loved. Addison 10 months
You are spunky, always keeping me on my toes. You are already mischievous (I'm going to have my hands full!) You are so smart. And you are truly beautiful in every way.

I don't know where time goes, I don't know who took my tiny newborn, but I do know I am looking forward to this next year of your life...watching you grow, learn, and shine.

I love you silly girl.
Happy 1st Birthday Addison Mae.

P.S.
Your Daddy loves you just as much, this was just a letter from Mommy :)
