Happy Birthday Baby Girl! You are One Year Old!

Dearest Baby Girl,

I cannot believe you are one year old today. This year has gone by way too fast. Your daddy and I love you so much and cherish every day with you. I would have never thought I would have loved being a mommy as much as I do. I look forward to loving you and playing with you and nursing you and rocking you every day! You are such a joy! It hasn't always been easy though. When you were born you were pretty fussy because of colic and acid reflux and it was really hard to be a mommy during those first few months. But I learned so much about God and how He parents us, and I hope I became a lot more like Jesus during those months. My prayer for you is that you would see God through me in the way I parent you. I hope that I model Jesus to you in the way I treat you and treat others. I know I will never be perfect at this, but this is what I strive for. I pray that you would know God and love God and love others. I pray that you would make disciples of all nations. That is simply what I desire for you and I believe that sums it up. This year has been filled with joys and struggles and I have mostly just figured it out day by day as I have depended on Jesus to guide me. I look forward to many more days and years with you. I love you so much!

Your Mommy
