{HAPPY FIRST BIRTHDAY TO OUR SWEET KATE}



I don’t even know where to begin today…This is such a big
day for our family because our beautiful baby girl turns ONE today!!  Saying that still feels crazy to me because
it literally feels like just yesterday that we were in the delivery room
welcoming our girl into the world.





I remember every, single detail about every, single second
of that amazing day, and thinking about it is truly overpowering for me.  The memories make me so emotional because I
can’t even put into words the powerful, explosive, overwhelming, heart-bursting,
warm, unconditional love that I feel for my little Kate.  Every time I think about her or even look
into her beautiful eyes, my heart seriously feels like it could burst right out
of my chest.





As I type this, I’m taken back to that first moment that I
held my baby girl…Our doctor put her directly into my arms, and she looked
right into my eyes.  As I looked at her
through tear-filled eyes with my husband right by my side, I knew that I was
already forever changed by my Kate.  In
that instant, I felt a love like no other…A love that was so incredibly special
and strong…It was a love that made my heart melt right then and there.





Not only did Kate’s birth make us the two happiest people in
the world, it also changed the way we live our lives.  I have felt this sense of contentment and
peace since our little girl was born, and she makes us want to live better
lives and be the best parents, role models, and mentors we can possibly be.  It’s not about us anymore…Now we live our
lives in a way that will make our daughter proud, and that means so much to us
that she has brought out such positivity in all of our lives.





Over the past year, I am so happy with the way Kate has helped
me live.  I have never felt closer to God
than I do now, and I pray every single day. 
I pray for my daughter, I pray for my family, but most of all, I just
find comfort in prayer, and it feels so powerful to me since Kate was
born.  It’s almost like I can feel Him
when I’m talking to Him, and I love knowing that He chose Kate for us.  It is such an honor to be her Mother, and I
am forever grateful to Him for giving us the most wonderful angel on earth.





So today, we celebrate Kate…The greatest thing that has ever
happened to us, and we vow to make each year better than the last and to be the
best parents we can be to her.  We
promise to protect her, squeeze her, comfort her, console her, inspire her,
respect her, cuddle her, honor her, but most of all, we promise to LOVE HER
with all of our hearts every day of our lives.





To our sweet Kate…We thank you…We thank you for making us
your Mommy and Daddy…We thank you for making us the happiest parents on
earth…We thank you for making us live better lives, and we thank you for making
this last year the BEST year we have ever had!! 
Happy 1st Birthday, sweet angel!  WE LOVE YOU!!!





xoxo,


Mommy and Daddy
