My beautiful baby girl, today you are ONE! Where has this past year gone? A year ago today, at 5:34 PM, you helped me prove to everyone (and myself) who doubted us that my body was in fact not broken. For that, I will forever be in your debt. My life changed forever that day and it's because of you. You have helped to heal me somewhat from the traumatic birth of your brother. It's because of you that I realized it doesn't have to be that way.
Little girl, you have brought me so much joy and shown me that there is room in my heart to love two babies. I have enjoyed so much watching you grow and getting to know your little personality over this past year. I love your smile, the way you light up when you see me at daycare, how your eyes always seem to find mine when we're nursing, and your snuggles. I love how you crawl over to the corner of the couch after nursing to sit and smirk like you're the Queen, how you look up to your big brother and how you hold hands with him in the car. I love everything about you.
I love you my princess!
