Today is a day I will never forget. It’s the day this beautiful soul came into my life. My first born, my daughter. I was pretty young when I had my daughter and I was so scared when I held her for the first time. I can remember thinking ” They’re going to realize I don’t know what I”m doing and take her away from me!” I didn’t know the first thing about what to do with a baby. Let alone my very own. She was so tiny and beautiful and soft. But boy could she cry, and she was determined from the first day I swear. She knew what she liked and didn’t like. So she taught me very quickly, how it was to be.
She never crawled, she went straight from sitting to walking. She was talking full sentences by the time she was One. One of my dearest friends(now) was moving next door and my daughter Eryn popped her head out the window and said:” I’m Eryn, who are you!” So my friend said, ” I’m Christine, this is my baby Jessica !” That was my daughter not a fear in the world. Said it like it was.
I still find it hard to believe she is “27” I can still see her tiny finger, her chubby cheeks. She has a heart of gold ( I like to think, that was from me) because the rest of her is pretty much her Father. The stubbornness, the say it like it is, the determined. The SO SUPER SMART!! I can remember her being right beside her daddy trying to do drywalling, then taking apart computers when she was bigger.
She get’s her flare from my Mother and Sister. Especially when it comes to makeup and clothes. Her creativity is incredible and I am so proud of every bit of her.
She has become a beautiful, strong woman. Who I know will find her way and will flourish in it. That’s where I’m glad she has her dad in her, her determination !! I love her to the moon and back, that will never change, or that when I see her I see that precious face that I held in my arms, through everything. When she was sad, angry, sick or just needed a hug. I cherish every moment I have with her, and I look forward to spending, even more, time with her when I can.
I love you so much Baby Girl!! Have a Happy Birthday, I can’t be there with you now, but I”m there in spirit!!
