For you, little one.

It's so hard for me to believe that one year ago, at this very moment, I was sitting in a hospital bed holding the most beautiful thing I'd ever seen. Hollie, your birth is the single most wonderful & sacred experience of my life. I never knew I could love someone so much. As I sit here typing this, with tears rolling down my face, I am still in awe. This morning I woke to two bright blue eyes, just inches from mine. You were staring at me, waiting for me to wake up. It was just one of the thousands of moments that we have shared, and I will cherish them all forever. I love you with all of my heart.

I have so many pictures to post from your special day, but it's late & mama's tired. So for now, here's one of my favorite quotes. It perfectly describes the way I feel about you.

Before you were conceived, I wanted you;
Before you were born, I loved you;
Before you were here an hour, I would die for you;
That is the miracle of love.
