It is my daughter's 8th birthday today and I can't help but reflect back throughout the years.

 

 

I only have one child and I adore her to pieces. As her birthday approaches today at officially 8:26 a.m. I remember this day very vividly. I had a planned c section as a few weeks before her due date (which was originally Christmas) she was considered breech. I was a little nervous as I have never done this sort of thing before.

I remember the room and the Christmas music playing in the background. "O Holy Night" was playing the exact moment Amber was born. It was really a magical time and I am truly blessed for her.

Through the colic, crawling, walking, potty training, talking, and everything in between I have enjoyed seeing her grow into a little girl. It is so hard to look at her and not see her as a newborn baby.

I am so proud of the little girl that she is. She is caring, loving, smart, and insanely talented. I love her to absolute pieces.

No matter what I will always be her Mom and will always be there to support her through the good, the bad, and the ugly. There is nothing like a Mother/ Daughter bond.

I love you Amber Grace and Mommy is so proud of you!
