My First


To my sweet girl,

My first Mother’s Day was fabulous and it was all because of you, because I’m your mommy. It’s so hard to believe that not so long ago I thought you would never be mine, I thought I’d never have the honor of being a mama. And now I get to be yours. How wonderful. You’re wonderful.

You were such a good girl during brunch at Sassi. Everyone thought you were so adorable and you lapped up the attention just like you lapped up the gelato I gave you. That was yummy wasn’t it? Everything we ate was yummy.

Sassi is very special because it’s where your daddy and I got married. It was very nice to spend my first Mother’s Day there and daddy and I decided it will be our family tradition to celebrate there every year. I really wanted to get a family picture of the three of us on the altar where your daddy and I said our vows, but you’re a stinker and you wouldn’t cooperate and it was too darn hot.

I love you baby girl, you are every wish I ever made come true. Thank you for giving me reason to celebrate Mother’s Day and every day since the day I found out you were on your way. I hope I am the mommy you deserve because you most certainly are perfection and more than I could have ever hoped for; you are my precious dream come to life.
