Being your mama is nothing at all like I expected. To be honest, I wasn’t sure exactly what I should expect from motherhood. It was a concept that was so foreign, so abstract, something I felt so undeserving of. And then you came into my life– whether I was ready or not– and completely changed every part of me. I never knew what love was until I laid my eyes on your sweet chubby cheeks and those sweet little sleepy smiles.
I’ll never grow tired of hearing your sweet little infectious giggle and the way you say “mama” just because you know how much I love it. I hope you never lose your silliness and you never take yourself too seriously. Life’s too short for that baby girl.
I want you to know that every night I sneak in and give you kisses on those still-chubby little cheeks and I’ll continue to do so as long as you’ll let me. I also pray for you every night before I go to sleep. I pray for your health and for your happiness and that you grow up to be brave and smart and strong.
Never stop giggling, never stop calling me mama and never forget how much I love you and always will love you. You made me a mama, sweetie, and for that I can never thank you enough.
