Four Years Later…

When you were born, I was scared, excited and happy among many other emotions. In all the uncertainties that made up my life, you became the only thing that I was really certain of. That felt good, and I thank you for it. In the beginning, you needed me. You need me less and less all of the time.

Your independence makes me proud, but I’m always here to be needed. In the past four years, I have never laughed so hard or felt so much love. I only wish I had a replay button to do it all again. (Well, maybe not all of it, but a lot of it.) Happy 4th Birthday Mia. Someday when I’m done teaching you… I hope you will understand everything you’ve taught me.

    Katren is going to be 2 in July & I already have those days where I think back to her newborn days. I can only imagine how I will feel when she turns 4, but I’m enjoying every day for sure!
