Wow. Who would have thought that in 2 months my life would be this different? I am tired, poofy, still eating like there’s 2 of me, my house is a mess, I haven’t gotten more than 3 hours of sleep at a time, and I smell like breastmilk every night and morning. And I am happy and content. I love my little girl, love her noises and the way she lights up when I call out her name. I never thought I would be happy as a SAHM (that’s another blog post) but I am.
So tonight my post is simply to say Happy Birthday. I love you Bella, more than you will ever know. I can’t imagine my life without you. You are so perfect and have made me a better person, just by being born. I can’t wait to see what you will become, what the future holds for you, and who you will be. Know with complete certainty that no matter what you decide in your life, what path you take, I stand behind you 100% as your mother. And I will love you unwaveringly.
Even if at 16 you run into the house from school in tears, scream at me to leave you alone, and slam the door in your room with your music blaring (that I would have never listened to at your age – we had morals when I was a child 🙂 ) I will still love you.
