Happy birthday, baby girl!
I have so much to say and not a single word to get it out. Every bit of it is good. Very very good indeed. We wouldn't change a thing about who you are, sweet baby girl.
Watching your baby take flight is scary. The nights she's gone can be long. And the days a mama hears nothing can have an awkward stillness to them. And then she comes home, and I feel her in my arms again. And I exhale a little bit. Facetime is good but an embrace is so much better.
Savoring every moment while she's home.
