Happy Birthday Sweet Girl!
I can't believe it's been an entire year since our sweet Kate came into this world!
A year since Kate was placed in Alex's arms while I was still under general anesthesia.
A year since I held her for the first time.
A year since Alex and I learned how to love deeper than we ever imagined possible.
A year since we became a family.
The past 365 days have been hands down the hardest 365 days of my life. But, they've also been the happiest, most fulfilling days of my life.
I may be a killer business woman but, I was made to be a mom. Made to wipe snotty noses and clean up spit up. Made to pick up a million toys and read books all day long. Made to love, protect, and fight for my sweet girl no matter what.
I wouldn't trade a single day with you sweet Kate. You make me laugh when I want to cry. You make me smile when I feel like frowning. You make me want to be a better person. A better mother. All because I want you to have the best life possible.
Kate, you are a special girl. You will do big things and go big places during your life. No matter what those things you do are, or where those places you go will be, know that Daddy and I love you now and will love you always.
Happy Birthday Sweet Girl!! I am so excited for the second chance at life year two will bring!
