No one else will ever know the strength of my love for you. After all, you’re the only one who knows the sound of my heart from the inside.

As an older mother, I went through a lot of difficulties while being pregnant with you. I only ate crackers and drank tea the first three months you were in my womb. I tried hard to eat healthy, but every time I did, nausea kicked in. I cried a lot worrying about how you were doing as I was sick most of the time. I never wanted to take any medication imagining it would have a bad effect on you.
I went through all that and never once complained because I kept hearing that was a good sign. They said it only meant you were growing perfectly well in mommy’s tummy. Every time I paid my doctor a visit and she asked me to have a scan done, it always made me nervous just thinking of how you would look and be elated upon knowing how good you were growing. I kept each one of your sonograms and doted on them every chance I got while waiting for your very exciting arrival.
You are adored, my little girl. I am over the moon everyday with your very existence. Nothing will ever change that. You and your brother are my world. You chase all my stress away. You make my life all the more brighter, all the more fulfilling, and all the more rewarding. I may have the most hectic days, but never will I forget to spend quality time with you. I will do anything in my power to give you everything your heart desires (as long as it is a desire driven by kindness, honesty, and integrity).
Happy first birthday, Little Miss! Please don’t grow up too fast, my sweet little angel. I love you more than you will ever know. I love you now and always.
