There is nothing in this world like your first born.
I love all of my children and I will never have a favorite.
But the miracle that is the first time you give birth cannot be matched.
Experiencing all of the first’s of parenting with her made it possible to consider having more children.
She was perfect! Every one should have a first baby like her ;D
As she grows and becomes more her own person, and less mine, she becomes more complicated and difficult and stubborn and contrary.
But at the same time even more special, magical, wonderful and miraculous than she was eight years ago.
The talented, loving, caring and thoughtful person she has become lets me know that I must be doing something right.
If she stays the person she is today and helps set the example for her brothers and sister, I will feel like the most accomplished woman in the world.
I love you, Missy!
