A Letter To Bella On Her First Birthday

"On the night you were born, the moon smiled with such wonder that the stars peeked in to see you and the night wind whispered 'Life will never be the same.' Because there has never been anyone like you... ever in the world."
My Sweet Bella Charles,
On this moment 365 days ago you changed my world forever. Your entrance was quite dramatic, like I know for sure you are mine. I didn't know how much I would love being a Mom, but it's more than that...I didn't know how much joy I would have being YOUR Mom.
Figuring each other out took some time, but I clearly remember the nights I rocked you for hours in your nursery, playing songs, singing to you, humming and crying. I cried tears of joy so many nights because I was amazed you were mine. In fact when you were born, I looked at your Dad crying saying "that's our baby!" You're still ours, and 1000% amazing as ever. I wasn't sure what I was doing some of those early days, and sometimes I still don't- but I know that I give you my all and loving and protecting you is my top priority.
You have been happy, so so happy and you have truly made our world brighter. I wake up with a smile walking in to you room while you rub your sleepy eyes and sit up and greet me with a smile. You know how to make my days so special, just by being you. Over the past year I can't tell you how many people have told me that your happiness makes them smile. Just seeing you, Bella, makes people happier, and that is such a wonderful gift you have. I am so proud of who you are, and the sweet soul you have. 
I don't know if you'll ever read this blog, but I hope you know just how much you've changed me for the better. You have given me patience, joy, passion, kindness and pushed me to learn new things. The greatest gift I've ever been given is becoming your Mom. I hope to teach you all the wonderful things this world has to offer- but part of the fun is learning things on your own.  Remember that miracles happen every day, and though she be little, she is fierce! You can do anything you put your mind to...just work hard and always Dream Big!
I've always wanted a daughter to call my own, and now I know how great it feels. I can't wait for all the fun things to come and to see what you accomplish. I promise to be by your side, cheering you on just like those first moments of sitting up and crawling. I may be obnoxious, but I'll always be there.
Some of my favorite memories from the past year include silly moments with just me and you- giggling over nothing and laughing until I'm crying, you learning how to poke my nose, stroking my face and playing with my hair as you fall asleep and dancing around your room. I am so thankful for every single second with you.
Bella Charlie, you are my biggest dream come true. You're all I have ever wanted and so much more. Keep on being bright, beautiful, special YOU. October 16, 2017 at 6:44 pm you changed my world forever. For the better. 
Thank you Bella boo. Happy Birthday my sweet girl!

“Heaven blew every trumpet
And played every horn
On the wonderful, marvelous
Night you were born.”
