Happy Birthday Sweet Girl

Today my girl is officially one year old.
An entire year.
I can hardly believe it.

We've come so far from this:

I'm not the same person I was a year ago.
Not even a little bit.

Emily teaches me every day what it means to love and to hope.

And this morning when she crawled on top of me and smiled down at me, my heart filled with joy and I could say, for the first time, that I would do it again...all of it...

I love you sweet girl...forever.

Happy Birthday.

First birthdays are such a milestone... for the parents. This is at least doubly true for you. What a place you have reached.

Happy birthday, Elimy.
