My sweet loving daughter..
It’s hard to believe a whole year ago I went into labor with you. When I think of that night – when all the medical staff were trying their best to control my blood pressure to lower down and your daddy was beside me holding my hand and praying for our safety. It wasn’t easy delivery a lot of painful contractions, pushing for just a few short minutes… then you, your warm, beautiful little body on my chest. Some of the happiest moments of my life.
Last night, as I rocked you to sleep my mind flooded with memories of the last year. The hundreds of times I have rocked you, sang ‘You are my Sunshine’, slept beside you so I can nurse you all through the night, the hours I spent widely awake with a broken heart listening to you cry because of sickness, the thousands of diaper changes, the snuggles, the kisses… and my most favorite, that smile. Oh, #princess isabelle… your smile. You have the most radiant smile I have ever seen. It’s genuine, and I can’t help but smile, too, when you flash those big eyes. This year has been filled with a profound amount of love because of you. I completely underestimated how overwhelming it would be to love a daughter like I love you.
I love you so much!
