I cannot believe one year ago today I held you in my arms for the very first time. I couldn't wait to be a mom. I never understood what people meant when they told me about the bond and love you feel for your child is like no other. I thought I knew what I was doing, I thought it would be easy, I thought people were out of their minds when they warned me of all the awful things that having babies came with.
Then I had her. I understood what they meant about the "special" kind of love you have for your child. I realized I had no idea what the hell I was doing, and that 27 years ago my parents had no idea what the were doing. This year wasn't easy, but it was amazing. The best year of my life. I cannot wait to see what kind of person she becomes. I cannot wait to hear about her hopes and dreams. Maybe she'll want to be an astronaut, maybe the President, maybe a baker, a teacher, a superhero, or maybe a race car driver. Only time will tell and only she can figure it out and I hope I don't mess up too much!
