A letter to myself on my baby’s 1st birthday

Baby's 1st birthday


Sentimental thoughts from a mom on her baby’s 1st birthday!

Grab a tissue and snuggle your little one as you dive into this read.

On May 3rd, 2018 my first born baby girl turned one, how could this be I thought?!  It had been the hardest, and the more rewarding year of my entire life.  I knew I had to capture the ups and downs of my emotions that day.   So here’s what I wrote to myself:

You’re a mom! It sometimes still takes a minute for that word, mom, to really hit me – I AM A MOM!

This past year has been a whirlwind; my world has been completely turned upside down. NO more sleeping in, hitting the town on the weekends, impromptu happy hours. Even sports and date nights having taken a back seat.

Weekends are spent mostly catching up on chores and taking care of my “newish” little human.  AND I wouldn’t change a damn thing.  I love this crazy, beautiful, boring, chaotic, love that we have.

Before my baby girl, I didn’t know it was possible to experience such joy; the kind of joy that can bring on instant laughs, and also smiles and tears of happiness all at the same time.  The kind of love that you never question, never doubt, never regret!

So now I need to take a moment to thank myself, thank myself for keeping this child (and myself) alive, well and happy for the past year, the hardest year ever. Those long nights, tiresome days, do not go unnoticed or without great reward.  So thank you for every minute of hard work, it’s totally worth it and you should definitely keep on going!

Because this is what mom life really looks like – and it’s incredible 🙂
