This post will be full of emotion and all things considered cheesy.
What a year it has been! Last night I had the hardest time falling asleep. I kept looking at the clock and reliving (in my head...) what was happening exactly one year before.
Just like last night, I'm tearing up just thinking about it.
You have changed our lives in so many ways. I'm not going to lie, some things were hard to adjust to at first, but it's all been well worth it. I can't imagine our life without you and wouldn't do anything differently.
I always thought I wanted a career. I thought I would go to law school... or do something "important." Things change.
I love staying at home with you, and I know that nothing else would/could be better for me (or you) than this experience. Although I know that I will love our second child just the same, there will always be something special about you, Chappellina.
No one will ever be able to replicate the bond that there is between us. Being a tad on the selfish side, I kind of love that.
I love you so much, and I can't wait to watch your little (big) personality continue to unfold!
You are beautiful.
I told you it would be cheesy.
Trust me, it could've been much, much worse. I tried to reign it in a little bit.
If you have a child, I'm sure you understand. If you don't, I truly hope that you get to experience it someday!
I think I'm going to save the milestone post for the day of her doctor's appointment.
Consider yourself spared.
We love you, Cha Cha!
Birthday pictures later...
