Where Did the Time Go? A Poem For My Daughter

26 Nov

We celebrated my daughter’s first birthday this last week and my thoughts have been trying to memorize the past year in fear that I might someday forget it.  Being a mother is …. well I’ve typed and retyped the ending to that phrase several times and just can’t get it right.  It’s wonderful and magical and crazy all at the same time.  There are moments that feel like they will never end and moments that end far too soon.  Right now I am feeling the “far too soon” part.  Being a mom is so incredible.

Here are a few pictures of our celebration and a little poem I wrote to my baby.
