My baby is one year old today...

I've been sitting back and reflecting a lot on this day...

I've been remembering my decision to finally start my family.

I've been thinking back to my pregnancy, the period just before I had Alexandra, and my birth story.

I've been thinking about how my life has changed over the last year.

Dear Alex,

I love you so much. I couldn't have known that you would be the best thing to ever happen to your father and I. I didn't know how much joy that you would bring to my life. Even more than a kitty, and I didn't think that was possible. Every night I go to bed, your father and I talk about how wonderful you are, all the cute things you did that day, and how amazing that you've come to share you life with us. We didn't know it would be like this. We didn't know that the life we were giving up, would result in having so very much more. We didn't know that we could be this happy. We love you Alex. No matter what happens in the future, know that we love you very much, and we're so glad you're here.

Love Mom

I can't believe it has been a year already! Longer than that since you began talking about the possibility, and it seems like only yesterday. I'm so glad that this year has been so wonderful for you, and here's wishing you all the best in the years to come. Alex is so very lucky to have you for a mom. <3 <3
