What do you want to be?

I love being a mom! You know the famous question, "What do you want to be when you grow up?" When I was growing up, that is all that I ever knew for sure.. that one day I wanted to be a mom. And this is the sweet girl that made me one:
Addie is getting SO big! She talks NONSTOP, can sing her ABC's, counts to 10 (skipping 4, 5, and 6), and never runs out of energy! This picture makes me smile...i love her bedhead, her cheesy fake smile, her big blue eyes, and her "big sista" pajamas.

When I first found out I was pregnant, I worried that I would never love another little person as much as I love my sweet Addie...but I was wrong. I fell instantly in love with our new little baby the first time that I felt him/her fluttering around inside of me. I can't wait to meet you baby!

Since Mother's Day was yesterday, I just wanted to let my Mom know that I love her so much! She has always been the best example to me in everything: cooking, cleaning, being willing to serve others, and loving unconditionally, just to name a few. I am so proud of you for going back to school for furthering your education. You will be an amazing nurse! Love you.

I just love your little family too!! Isn't it great...being a mother. One of the greatest joys in my life. I can still remember the first flutter of life that I felt when you first moved. I loved you then...but I love you even more now as I watch the great job that you are doing as a mother. I am so glad that you are my daughter...I can't imagine my life without you!
