It is my birthday today! I took this self portrait, thinking about the past year and the year ahead. There is so much I want to tell this beautiful babe who made me a momma. The ups and downs of figuring this whole thing out. Every day is something new, yet monotonous. Learning and growing every day. Not just her. Me too. The way her eyes light up when she smiles. There is nothing better in world than that. I could go on and on. For right now there aren’t many words, but there are hugs, kisses, and snuggles. Thank you Lord for giving me this precious gift.
For all you daughters, and moms and dads to a girl, give the song, Baby Girl by Will Hoge a listen. It has so many of things that I want to say but don’t have the words for. I danced with my daddy to it at my wedding. It’s even more special to me now having a baby girl!
