365 Days!

Hallee Jane Brook,

I feel like it was just yesterday that we waited for those two pink lines that changed our lives forever! Now you are ONE years old & I could have never imagined being a mom would be like this. People always say that you are never ready to have kids...they are so right! I could have never been ready for the way you walked into my life & have forever changed me. I love you more then I could have ever thought possible. I thank God for finding me worthy to be your mommy. I am grateful to witness the extraordinary father your dad is to you. I think you are one awesome little girl!

I am proud of the loving, funny, smart, beautiful, energetic, strong willed & passionate little girl you already are. I can only imagine how proud I will be of you in the years to come. I know that you are going to do something great in this world. I pray that you grow an amazing passion for Christ & the plans he has for your life. We look forward to seeing the gifts & purpose he has already placed on your heart. I pray you will have the confidence & desire to follow after his will.

The moment the doctor laid you on my chest will be forever ingrained on my heart. I cherish the moments you want to cuddle & freely give kisses. I admit I have been taking extra long to put you to bed at night because I hold you extra close knowing these days are numbered. I hope you know that you are greatly loved. I love the line from a great book..."I'll love you forever, I'll like you for always, as long as I'm living my baby you'll be!" Hallee Jane you are my sweet baby girl, Happy Birthday Pumpkin Girl!!


That is the same way I feel about you turning ONE!!

Adore your daddy-daughter love!
