A Letter to My Daughter

My Sweet Grace,

Happy first birthday my little lady! Today you turned ONE! It is such a bittersweet and emotional day for mommy. I am so proud that you are growing into such a beautfiul and smart little girl but I'm sad that every day you get a little bit bigger. I can't believe that it has been one whole year since you came into this world and blessed the lives of everyone around you. Your smile shines so bright and your eyes bring life to my soul.

I feel like the luckiest mama in the world to be able to share this journey with you, Grace. Without even knowing it you make every day better. From the moment you wake up in the morning my mommy heart is so full of love and it is all because of you. I know that your daddy feels the exact same way as I do. We are beyond lucky to get to be your parents. You are what our lives needed.

I know as the years pass you are only going to get older and need me less. I want you to know that mommy will be here for you no matter what. I promise to always put you first. I promise to tell you 'I love you' every day for the rest of forever. I promise to be the one you can count on when no one else is there. I promise to teach you everything I can so you will be ready for your future. I promise to always sing you Twinkle Twinkle Little Star no matter how old you get. Everything you do, may it be done with love and laughter. Never stop being YOU.

Grace Elizabeth Keneally, you are the most perfect little girl on this planet.

I love you to the moon and back!
