Blueberry, Basil & Goat Cheese PieApril 3, 2012
I cannot believe it. I don’t want to believe it. But, it is true; my baby girl is just a few days shy of being ONE! I look at her on a daily basis and think “How did we get here?”. It is quite extraordinary to carry a baby for 40 weeks (in my case, 36) and welcome this itty-bitty perfectly innocent little being into the world and watch them grow and thrive on a daily basis. It makes me teary-eyed just thinking about it. Poppy Ireland you have exceeded any and all expectations I could ever have for a child. For MY child. Although you may not resemble me appearance wise (yet), you definitely have a few of my personality traits… thankfully the better ones 😉 You are perfectly independent, stubborn, feisty, loving, and incredibly determined. And totally fearless. And I couldn’t have asked for better qualities in you so far. You also have a great goofy side which I attribute to your daddas tendency to be a [grown] child! You are happy. And smiley. And, of course, a dog lover. & I eagerly await to see what the future holds for you! No matter what you choose for your life & which paths you want to take, I will be here to help guide you and support you all of the way through. I Love You & wish you the happiest 1st Birthday, Ever! Your [unrelated] Auntie Amanda, from the lovely Amanda Rachelle Photography, did yet another photo shoot for you for your 1st Birthday. You are ADORABLE. And I am IN LOVE with our photos!!! I cannot wait to share them with you as you get older. I must share with you!
