Dear Baby on my First Mother's Day

Wednesday, May 17, 2017

Dearest Charlee,

There’s so many feelings to be felt, all beautiful feelings. This day is different than any other days celebrating me: it’s celebrating you AND me. It’s celebrating the fact that I am your mama and you are my baby. That is something no one can ever take away from us. One day I won't be here but I will forever be your mama. It’s celebrating the best thing I’ve ever been called:  a mama.

Last year on Mother’s Day, you were still in my belly. We had just found out that we were pregnant. While we celebrated that day, this day this year is different. While I held you in my belly last year, this year, I held you in my arms. I’ve never held anything better. Nothing is ever made me as happy as seeing your sweet gummy smiles and belly laughs.

On this day, I  definitely shed some tears, shared a few laughs, and smiled the biggest of smiles. On this day, all of those tears, laughs, and smiles will be shared with you. My baby, my sweet precious little girl.

This day is supposed to be a day to celebrate me, but I know that it is a day that I will celebrate you, a day that I will be celebrating the greatest blessing: being your mama.

I will hold you close to me, and kiss your sweet face. Because, my love, you are the reason for today and every other day. I watch the clock while at work waiting for 5 to be able to see your face and find out how your day went. 

And I couldn’t be happier.

I love you, my sweet baby.

love, mama.
