It's hard to believe that I've only been doing this mom thing for three years. It feels like it's been ages, and at the same time, I am having difficulty with the quickness in which (all of the sudden it feels like) it passed. I still remember the incredible anticipation, happiness, anxiety, fear, and love that continued to build and build the entire pregnancy until I finally got to hold her in my arms. There is just no way to describe or measure that feeling. Nor is there a way to describe how bittersweet it is to see your baby growing up. Even though I sometimes wish she could stay little forever, we have so much fun with her growing independence and her BIG personality. Happy birthday, sweet girl. You keep getting bigger but you will always be our first born baby!
