As I lay my sweet baby girl down to sleep the night before her second birthday, I can’t help but be super emotional and nostalgic. I can’t believe how quickly 2 years has flown by. It’s been a crazy, fun ride with our first child so far.
Being Amelia’s mom is never boring. She’s a ball of energy and puts a smile on my face all day long. Sometimes I get frustrated, who am I kidding, all the time. Being a mom is the hardest most rewarding job I’ve ever had. The last 2 years have been anything but easy. Many, many, many sleepless nights have occurred. Colds, stomach flu, teething, tummy aches are never fun. Giggling, dancing, playing outside is always fun. So much fun packed in one tiny body. Tonight as I sit in her room holding her hand before bed I can’t help but have tears of joy in my eyes. Amelia is the most beautiful, smart and amazing child. She lights up our entire family and I can’t even remember what life was like before she was in this world. (Or maybe I do… Freedom to do whatever I want! Jk) I’m so excited to celebrate my little girl’s Birthday today and celebrate myself as a mom. I know it sounds weird, but I think it’s my day too. My life changed for the better when she was born 2 years ago today and for that I celebrate!
Happy 2nd Birthday Milly Moose!
