I've had this blogging idea for years now (this post was originally started April 28), but have been afraid to pull the trigger. I figure now that my daughter is turning one tomorrow (AH!) I should start documenting to remember everything I can about her.
Speaking of, heres my sweet Harper Love. She was born September 7, 2014 at a perfect 7 pounds, 14 ounces. It was love at first sight, of course.
And heres that sweet sack of sugar now. Walking, talking, and being little miss sassy.
So as I sit here on the eve of her first birthday, crying into my wine glass, I am so thankful to be her mother. I can't believe I was picked to be her mama, and she is the biggest blessing I have ever experienced. She's amazing in every way & I can't even remember my life before her.
I pray many things for her. That she continues to be as sweet as she is right this second. That she is as loving as she is right now. That always follows her dreams & never sells herself short. She is such an independent little girl & I pray she stays that way. She is very determined and I hope she uses that to make herself proud. That she stays confident and fearless. That she experiences adventures and takes risks. I pray she follows her heart. That she never loses that playful spirit & innocence. Most of all, I pray she knows how extremely loved she is & pray she never forgets that.
Sleep tight, my sweet baby. Mommy & Daddy love you to the moon & around all the stars & planets and back.
