Dear Baby Jane,
I have heard people say that they believe in love at first sight. I was never one of those people until you were placed in my arms one year ago. From the very moment I looked into your eyes I know that I had never felt a love like I felt in that moment. You see Jane, at that moment, a little piece of my heart escaped from me and joined yours. We are forever bound, you and me. You are my sweet, precious, precocious, curious, loving, and funny girl. For your Daddy and me, you have made every day since your arrival better than the day that came before.
On Wednesday, we celebrated your very first birthday. It was bittersweet for Mommy. All day, I felt a tug at my heart when I realized that one entire year has passed since you and I first met. How is that possible? If only I could slow down time... But, I can't. All I can do is watch you grow and learn each and every day and try not to take a moment for granted.
Jane we still have so much to learn about each other. That's the sweet part about all of this. I cannot wait to wake up each day wondering what will come next. There is so much more to do and read and explore. I want for you to see it all!
You are the very best thing about me. Together, your Daddy and I will love you more today than we did yesterday and more tomorrow than we did today.
Happy Birthday my precious child. You truly are a gift.
