At exactly12:50 this afternoon, my baby girl will officially be 1 years old. I feel like it was just yesterday that my tiny human graced us with her arrival. We’ve experienced quite the year as a family, from a handful of sleepless nights, to teething, to bouts of only wanting mommy or only wanting daddy to sooth and comfort her. But every bad day came with ten times the good days, and every last second of this first year has been worth it.
Remy is such a cuddle bug, always walking over and making herself comfortable in my lap, resting her head on my shoulder, breathing me in while I do the same. She has an adventurous spirit and is always testing her boundaries. The kid is full of wander and a sense of curiosity I hope she never loses. She is a master of climbing the stairs, hates it when water is dumped on her head (although she loves the water), and has really gained speed in her walking abilities. Remy gravitates towards anything the color purple, loves petting her puppy siblings and loves to give high fives. She is sassy, rambunctious and everything I’ve ever wanted in the daughter I never knew I wanted.
So Miss Remy Maryn, my first born, my beautiful, feisty baby girl, I cannot explain to you just how much you mean to both me and your daddy. We love you so deeply words cannot accurately describe the aching pain you leave in our heart. I cannot thank you enough for letting me be your mother. You are truly the sunshine on the cloudiest of days, with you big, goofy grin and the most beautiful green eyes I’ve ever seen. Thank you for giving me grace in this last year as I stumbled my way through motherhood and trying to be the best possible example for you. The last 365 days with you have truly been the dream of dreams and for that I thank you.
Happy first birthday, baby girl. I love you to the moon and back again.
12 month update coming to the blog next week!
