Five years ago today I gave birth to the most beautiful baby girl I ever laid eyes on. It was a rough 22 hours of labor, but in the end all that pain, agony, and fear brought a perfect baby into this world. I never knew I could love so intensely until I held you in my arms.
Now you have grown into an intelligent, witty, and fun-loving little young lady. I have learned so much since becoming a mommy and I’m sorry I haven’t been perfect, but you’re my very first and there’s a lot of learning that’s involved. I would know because I am also a first born.
I know we butt heads from time to time and I am sorry about that, but it’s because you are just so strong willed and empowered it’s difficult finding the best way to steer that in the right direction. I love you so so much and I can’t wait to watch you grow and to learn with you.
Happy Birthday sweetie.
