My Little Girl’s Birthday

6 Jul

Today is the first anniversary of the day my darling daughter was born.  Its been a year of learning and laughing and experiencing new things.  The cliché about nothing preparing you for life as a parent is certainly true.  I didn’t know how many nappies I would change, dirty noses I’d wipe or bumps and bruises I would kiss better; but I was kind of prepared for that part of it.

What I wasn’t prepared for was the overwhelming and all-encompassing love that I feel for my baby girl.  Her smile slays me daily.  Her laughter is the most infectious I’ve ever heard.  Her pain moves me to tears.  I’ve never before felt so helpless and so powerful all at the same time.  If I had to choose to give my life to save hers, I’d give mine in a heartbeat.

She is part of me in every way and today I want to share a bit of her with you 🙂

Her Little Wonder Dress.

She gets her eyes from her dad.

She's the happiest baby I know 🙂

      Hehe, you can tell which one was taken by a proper camera 🙂 The rest are all from cellphone cameras (also, Phillygirl is much more talented than me!)
