Looking Back...

I just wanted to take the time before the new baby comes to look back on the last two years of my life.

Motherhood is the best. It is the greatest gift and blessing that could have ever happened to me in my lifetime.

Grace seems to be growing by the minute each day. As I look at her each day she seems to change and grow more.

Grace has brought so much love and laughter into our home. Grace's kind heart and determined personality lights up our day. Her innocence and curiosity for things in life have made me a better person and a better mother.

When I tucked Grace into bed, I can't but help get choked up and fill my eyes with happy tears for how much joy she brings me.

We read this book to Grace all the time called, " Mama do you Love Me". We have read it so many times that it is torn at the seems and has stains on it from who knows what. But there is this verse that always brings a smile to my face.

"I will love you forever and for always, because you are my dear one".

I want Grace to know that we will always love her, she is our dear one and she is always special to us as she will have been our first. Just like baby number two will be dear to us and be special as he or she will be our baby.

We are ready to start this new chapter and make our family complete. Grace will be a great big sister and I look forward to watching her with her new brother or sister.
