"if it's your birthday and you know it, clap your hands!"
having your first baby is a weird experience. for my entire life, i daydreamed of my "someday" family. i wondered what my husband would look like (spoiler alert: he's a patrick dempsey and henry cavill hybrid, lucky me), where we would live, how many children we would have, etc. i spent hours and hours and hours thinking of how my life would unfold and how i hoped my life story would be a good one.
storie has made it the absolute BEST.
i feel absolutely giddy when i think of my future now and i know for certain that she is a part of it. she will always be the oldest, the first, the perfect little package that fulfilled my lifelong desire of being a mother. she is an absolute dream come true. i love everything about her: the way she REFUSES to cuddle, the way she is obsessed with empty soda cans, the way she scrunches up her nose to smile when she is really happy. i hope to give you an entire life of scrunchy-nosed smiles, sweet thing. you deserve the world. i'm so grateful that i am a part of yours.
