My dearest Lily,

I can’t believe you are 1 today.

This past year has gone by way too fast, it feels like just yesterday you were born.

All those months that I was pregnant with you, I would day dream about what you would be like.

Never in a million years could I have imagined you or dreamed you to be as amazing as you are.

You are just wonderful!!

From the very moment you were born, I knew you were a force to be reckoned with.

You latched and started breast feeding as soon as you were born.

Right away you seemed older than you should be.

You are so smart.

You are so funny.

You have never looked confused.

You have such a great sense of self.

Sometimes I think you know more than I know…

As your mother, I can only promise you that I will try to be the best mom I can be to you.

I can only promise you to be the best friend that I can be to you.

I only hope that we can forever be friends.

I love you my blue eyed cheeky-cheeky.

Happy first birthday!!!!

Love you,

Mommy
