In My Daughter's Eyes
My Dearest Baby Girl,
You are my heart, you are my everything. To imagine that there was ever a life without you is unreal. You make my life unstable, unbalanced and chaotic - all characteristics I used to cringe at; but, now all words I've grown to love and appreciate. You make everyday interesting and everyday silly. You make getting up in the morning; albeit, exhausting - worthwhile. The second we put you down for bed, I'll stare at your monitor and count the hours until I can squeeze your little body again. The alarm goes off and I cringe, then I remember - Its time for a baby girl sandwich and I jump out of bed.
Your personality is huge, your laughter is even bigger. The purity in your heart is something I hope you never lose. The looks you give and the silly things you do, always put a smile on my face, if not a huge belly laugh. You may be a daddy's girl, but you'll always be my best friend. I wish I could capture in a bottle all of the kisses I want to give you at all times (trust me, I have to hold back a lot); then make you carry that around and whenever you're feeling sad or alone, you could open that bottle and kisses would come flowing out, just to make you smile. I know, I'm weird. But, you'll grow to love it, because you'll become it too.
I hope that you'll have a fulfilled life, do the things that make you happy and know along the way that you're loved more than you could even imagine possible. Although, I'm not a perfect mom - I'm your mom and the love I have for you could move mountains in seconds. I'll always be here for you, I'll be your biggest cheerleader and your biggest advocate. I will fight for you when you feel weak, I will laugh with you when you need cheering up, I will be strict on you to help you learn, I will be your rock when you're having a hard time, I will be whatever you need me to be when you need it. Plus, you're living with me forever - so it'll be easy for me to be those things. All joking aside, you can always count on me.
There will be days you hate me, there will be days you cannot get enough of me (those will be the best days), there will be tough times and there will be fun times. But, know this is the journey of life and embrace it all. I cannot wait to watch you grow up and become the best you.
My advice for you; be you, always you. Don't compare yourself to anyone else, don't let anyone tell you, you are not amazing. Stay humble, stay focused, be kind and always love with your whole heart.
I love you,
Your best friend (ok, your mom)
