Two Years

I apologize for any misspellings or grammar issues in this post. I am already crying and we're on sentence two. 

You see, two years ago tomorrow, this beautiful girl made me a mommy.

And I can't even begin to process the fact that I have a two-year old.

People say that having a child completely changes your life. And that's absolutely true. But it's also absolutely true that Emerson changed our lives for the better. I have never for one single second regretted my decision to become a parent. No matter what I achieve for the rest of my life, my children will be my greatest accomplishments.

In two short years, she has shown me the true meaning of unconditional love. Every day I'm in awe that I helped create someone so perfect. Every day I love her more and more. Every day she amazes me with what she's learning/doing/saying/being.

She is the sweetest, smartest, funniest, happiest hazel-eyed girl I have ever met. Jon and I constantly say to each other "How is this our baby???" because she is so awesome and we really don't feel worthy to be her parents. But man, it's a blast, so I'm not giving her up!

Happy birthday Emerson - I love you more than words can say.
