Three years ago today you made your entrance into this world. I went into the hospital in pain as a scared mommy-to-be. I left the hospital in pain as a scared mommy. It was the best day of my life.
You have changed my life for the better. Having you with me has made me a better person. Before you came into my life, I was lost. I was a girl floating around looking for my meaning. Now that you are here, I know why I am here and what my meaning is. I am here to be your mom. And I love it. Every single second from the ones when we hug and cuddle and kiss to the ones where I just can't seem to get you to listen to me. I love every second I get to spend with you.
I have watched you grow, learn to crawl, learn to walk, talk, eat big people food, and now I see you playing computer games all by yourself. Your intelligence amazes me as well as how you have taken to music. I look at you now, and I can see your future. It is bright and promising, and I can not wait to see you grow up.
But some days I look at you and want you to stay little forever. I want you to cuddle with me when we watch movies, to bring your blankie and sleep with me on the couch. I want you to jump up when you hear the door and race to greet me with the biggest hug ever.
I closed my eyes and you turned 1 --
Happy Birthday to my Leah boo. You are one amazing daughter and big sister. I can not wait to see you grow up and conquer anything you set your heart too. I can not wait to see what God has in plan for you!
I love you,
