Dear Sweet Pea...
One year ago today you and I went through something so profound together. Wriggly and pink and helpless, you were pulled from my belly as you made your dramatic entrance into this world. In those minutes just before you were born I remember thinking I couldn't believe this life-changing moment was finally here. I was about to become a mom. Your mom! And I was both terrified and thrilled at what that all meant.
Now here we are, an entire year later, and we've both survived! Alice Glen... over the last twelve months you have taught me so much about myself. Through your innocent little eyes I've learned how to love profoundly, how to find patience when I thought I had none and how to let go of the past, forget the future and live in the moment. Thank you for helping make me a better person.
Baby girl, I am so lucky to be your mom. I didn't think it was possible but I love you more today than that perfect moment you were born. You are my everything.
