A letter to Lilly on her first birthday


Dear Lilly Joyce,

I cant believe it has been a year since you were born. This last year has been the most fulfilling and beautiful time in my life, and that is all because of you. Your Daddy and I love you more than we could even begin to describe.

I feel so blessed that God choose me to be your mom Lilly, you fill a piece of me that I never knew was empty. Watching you grow and learn new things every single day is so amazing, and you make me so proud.

You have such a fun personality, and you always have me laughing. When you were a newborn you didn't want to cuddle or sleep because you wanted to look around and learn. You started playing with your toys right away, and even the doctors would comment on how active you were. You were so strong and had great head support right away. Daddy would lay you on his chest and you would pick up your head and look over his shoulder.

You love music and the second I start singing or music comes on your start dancing. I often joke that you are just like me, and one day you will be dancing down the aisles of the grocery store. You love going to play groups and playing with the other kids. Even though you are so tiny for your age you don't let it slow you down or hold you back, you are right there with them, and my heart bursts with pride for you. You are learning to sort your toys, match shapes, and are getting into everything. You give snuggies and kisses to us and your animals.

I am excited to see what the next year will bring for our little family, and I am so excited to see you discover new things. I wish I could slow down time, but I try to just enjoy what time I do have with you. I hope one day when you read these you know I love you very much, and from the moment I knew you existed I put you before anything. You are the light of my life Lilly Joyce, thank you for being my daughter, thank you for bringing so much joy into my life.

I love you,
