You made me a mommy!

10 years ago a small black haired baby girl was placed in my arms and some how I was supposed to know what to do.  When I looked down she was so beautiful.  So perfect.

Fast forward to now and I have a beautiful, spunky, happy go lucky tween.  We have our moments of eye rolling, and door slamming, but if we didn't have those things going on, then I wouldn't think I was doing a good job raising her. I am still supposed to know what to do, but somehow I still don't, but thats ok.  We take each day at a time, and some days are better than others.  But when I look into her eyes and she smiles, I know we are on the right road.  When she crawls onto my lap (or at least tries to) and tells me she loves me, everything else stops and I hold her close.

I know days like this will be gone soon.  Today I am just going to stop and soak it all in.  My baby girl is 10 and growing bigger everyday. 

Happy Birthday Hannah Brelynn.  I love you!


  1. Hope she had a wonderful birthday!

  2. what a beautiful post about your daughter!
    when you remember her 10th year of life, think about all the precious moments you spent with her, and even those eye-rolling moments. But always remember and let her know how special she was... and how proud you are she's your first born daughter.
    She's so beautiful!
    Happy Bday Hannah!
