happy birthday to you...

Quinne is one today!!  Happy Birthday my sweet little lady.  This is the face we woke up to this morning.  There is nothing better. 

I just want to take a moment to say how much I love you Quinne.  You have changed me in the most amazing way.  I look at life with such happiness and gratitude.  Each day I'm given with you I will be forever grateful for.  You are healthy and happy.  You are wild and so expressive it kills me each and every day.  I'm a little scared of the amount of sass you already possess, but we'll cross that bridge when we get there.  Or I'll have a gin and tonic.

I'm just so excited about the next stages in life.  I can't wait to watch you learn how to talk and become more and more independent.  It has been so much fun watching you grow this last year and I know it's going to keep getting better with each day.  I'm so honored to be your mom.  I'm so happy that you are in my life.  I love you so much it hurts at times.  Please know that through all the rough times and hard lessons I have learned it was all worth it.  I have you to thank for making me look at my life through a different pair of eyes.  Learning to be selfless and caring even when I was too tired or didn't want to.  I am forever changed.  

Thank you for being my baby.  Thank you for turning me into a mom.  

I love you to the moon.
