Last Week, You Learned To Walk

Posted by idawrites on April 26, 2011 in All Moms, Children |

I have no idea how time passed so quickly. They were laying you in my arms for the first time ever, just a few short months ago… surely it couldn’t have been longer than that.

And wasn’t it just last week that you were learning to walk?


And making everyone fall in love with those round little cheeks…

And developing your comedic timing (I think you peaked at just about this moment)…

And becoming the big sister that your little sisters have always looked up to…

How is it possible that you became a young lady…

And achieved so many milestones…

And had such fantastic experiences in such a short amount of time?

To my dearest Anna Marie,

If I had done all the “right things” as a teenager, my life would never have held the richness, the love, the laughter, the tears, the memories, and the dreams of a bright future that having you has brought to it. I’m so thankful that the universe chose me to be your mom; and I’m stunned at what an amazing, beautiful, smart woman you have grown into.

It’s your time now… your time to go out and chase your dreams, make your mistakes, and achieve your successes. We’ll be waiting right here to catch you if you fall… now go spread those wings!

Happy 18th Birthday Anna!!
