Tomorrow you are one. It is more than my heart can handle sometimes. Watching you grow so fast. I'll admit, it makes your mama cry. A lot. You have changed my heart. I didn't think it was possible. I remember when I was pregnant with you and I was so afraid. Afraid of having two kids and having no idea how to do that. I was afraid that I would run out of love to give. That I wouldn't have enough love to go around. But that was silly of me. My heart grew bigger and the second I saw you, love swept over me. It was that easy.
You are the most awesome baby, Plum. You always have a smile on your face and a snuggle to give. Your laugh is contageous and you have the best morning face of any baby ever born. I can see adventure in your eyes too. I can tell you are planning to storm the world as soon as you figure out how to walk. And I think you might have already devised a plan to bring your brother down a peg or two.
But I want you to know something. You were meant to be. You really were. Someday I will tell you the story, but for now just know that all the stars alligned for you the day you were made. And I have a feeling that they will continue to allign for you. If your determination is any indication, you have great things to do in this life.
You were a wonderful baby. Oh man, I am gonna miss that part of you. I already do. But I know with every part of my heart that you will be just as awesome at being one.
So happy birthday, darling girl. Our lives were made whole the day you were born. You are loved beyond the stars. Always.
PS: Oh and when you watch this when you are all grown up, please don't be mad at me that I took so many pictures of you in all your naked chubbiness and then posted them on the internet. You have to understand that your chub is so amazing. I promise to ease up a bit now that you are a toddler. But just a little bit.
