Forever in my heart..















This is my heart, this is part of my soul, this is my first love.
It was five years ago today that you took my breath away, I saw you across a crowded hotel room being held by one of your nannies. I can't remember ever feeling so nervous, so overwhelmed, so consummed with such an intense feeling of love.
I held you, you looked at me and cried(and cried for 5 hours, LOL), I think you felt my nervousness. I couldn't even cry, I was so overwhelmed with emotions. I placed my cheek against yours and felt your soul touch mine, I had never felt that in my life.
I knew love, I had married the most amazing man in the world, but it was different, it felt like no other I 'd experienced. I knew from the moment I took you in my arms there would be nothing that I wouldn't do to protect you, forever.
As I have watched you grow from baby to toddler, to my "big" girl you have amazed me, made me burst with pride, sometimes, yes, you have made me a crazy Mom.
You are everything I dreamt my daughter would be, loving you and being your Mom has been an honor and truly a gift.
I love you Puddin' Pop'.

It may not be the easiest way to give birth but heck, just listening to the story over and over never loses it's emotion and charm. She is incredibly gifted, smart and pretty. Congrats on your family day today. Way better holiday than the bogus "Family Day" we get next week!
p.s read your email. I pulled the blog.
