I’m busy crying today.

One more day…really…few hours until my girl turns ONE.

I didn’t know having a child would be this good.

Would feel this right.

Would make me see what matters in this lifetime.

Would feel so inadequate at something I was created to do.

But still feel so confident at being her mom.

Iz has given us joy beyond comprehension. What did I do right in my past lives to deserve something so good now?

Her 1st year – ONE – year old!

She’ll be the ONE that taught me how to be a mom. The ONE that gave me the excitement of firsts – first laugh, first crawl, first word…

She’s our girl.
