letter to ryann

Oh Miss Ryann.  It has been exactly one year since I saw your precious little face.  Has all that time really passed?

I won't lie.  This year has been incredibly difficult.  I lost a lot of sleep, a little bit of personal hygiene :o), and maybe a tiny bit of myself.  There are some things that happened that I wish would have gone a little differently.  But if the only way to get you was to do it all over again, I'd do it in a heartbeat.  You changed my life and my world forever.  Most definitely for the better. 

You amaze me daily.  The things you do, the things you try to say… when I watch your little mind work I am in awe.  Words honestly can not explain how much I love your little soul.  You are spunky, you are timid, you are eager, you are stubborn.  You are so many wonderful things.  I have a feeling you are going to keep me and your daddy on our toes!

Watching you grow, day by day, is such a gift.  To this day I still can't believe I helped create such an amazing little life.  I hope you always know how much I love you.

Happy birthday my sweet, sweet baby.

forever and always,
your mommy

How do I love you? It's impossible to say.
For if I had a million days and time enough for all the praise,
I couldn't tell you all the ways... I love you.
