Sweet Little Lilly,
One short year ago our lives were forever changed. It seems as though I just blinked and here we are, a year later. Where did all the time go?! Everyone always said "it's going to fly by and then she'll be 18" and I thought "Pfft yeah ok". But It's True! I try to battle this by enjoying each day as it comes and goes and relishing in the moment. And by having a camera CONSTANTLY in your face, so nothing's forgotten;)
I look forward to every day, seeing you grow and learn and I love watching the excitement on your face. The fascinated sparkle in your eyes makes me want to look at the world around me in a whole other light. I want to see it the way you do. This year has been one filled with wonderment, laughter, yawns, learning, stumbles, snuggles, love, hugs, kisses, diapers and did I mention yawns? You have brought me so much joy. I can't imagine my life without you. I never knew that I had the maternal instinct; that I was meant to be a Momma. But this feels like the most natural thing in the world. Meant to be. You & me.
You amaze me every day and always will.
