FC: London Stella | the first year

1: baby | girl | My sweet girl. You are such an amazing blessing in our life. On the day you were born, our life was filled with so much love and joy. I was so in love with you from the moment they held up your teeny tiny self. I could not believe how tiny and delicate you were. You have the sweetest and calmest demeanor. You eat and sleep well and are content most of the time. You are very different from your brother. Asher loves you to pieces. He loves to hold you and kiss you and wants to know where you are at all times of the day. This first year of your life has been so precious. We have watched you grow and change from a gentle, sweet newborn to a sassy, smart and silly toddler. We can't wait to see what your future holds. Always know that you are our precious girl and we love you to the moon. | Before you were conceived I wanted you. Before you were born I loved you. Before you were here an hour I'd give my life for you. ~Maureen Hawkins


3: Your Birth Story I went into the hospital to get induced on Wednesday, June 1st. I went into the hospital around 5pm for cervadil. By 11pm I was very uncomfortable and 2 cm dilated. I was in labor through the night waiting for the doctor to come and break my water in the morning. Around 10:30 I got my epidural and Dr. Delacruz broke my water. I was comfortable for a few minutes and then my labor became very intense. I was planning on resting and doing my makeup like I did with Asher, but you had other plans. I started progressing very rapidly and the pain was very intense in spite of the epidural. Finally it was time to push. After 3 short pushes you were here! Your perfect little self came into this world at 12:57 pm. I could not believe how quickly everything had happened! It was so surreal! And you were so tiny and perfect. We all worried that you were going to be big...but when you came out you were so teeny tiny at only 6lbs 8.8 oz. We could never have anticipated how quickly and intensely we would fall head over heels in love with you. London you are the sweetest and most beautiful baby! Your personality is so laid back and all we can do it stare at you and cover you in kisses.

11: "A wee bit of heaven drifted down from above, a handful of happiness, a heart full of love." | We are finally ready to take you home! We left the hospital on Saturday, June 4. There were lots thunderstorms the day we brought you home. Nana and Asher were waiting for us back at our house. Asher and Nana made you a welcome home sign and bought you balloons! Mommy was so excited to wear your sweet yellow dress on you!

48: Christmas Preparations | You are such a little observer! You had so much fun watching Mommy, Daddy and Asher decorate the house and the Christmas tree. You even wanted to try and put ornaments on by yourself. You were happy and content to sit in your exersaucer and watch all the festivities. It was a long night though, and you fell asleep with Nana after a little photo shoot with you and brother.

49: ~silent night~

52: You had such a fun first Christmas! We celebrated with all of our family. Nama and Papa came to your house to watch you open presents on Christmas morning. You didn't get very excited about your presents, but you liked to rip and chew on the wrapping paper. You also liked the choo-choo train we put around the Christmas tree for you and brother. You are such a sweet girl and we had such a wonderful holiday with you. You are such a big girl now that you can sit up all by yourself and roll over

89: puddin, | One sweet year old! Where have these twelve months gone? I cannot believe that my tiny girl is one! You have grown so quickly and are becoming more and more of a toddler each day. As long as I can remember, I have always wanted to have a daughter. I have been so blessed to have an amazing mother who is also my best friend. I always worried that I wouldn't be lucky enough to have a daughter who would feel the same way about me. And then you arrived. The night that we found out you were going to be a girl was one of the sweetest nights of my life. I finally allowed myself to dream all the dreams I ever had about having a little girl of my very own. That night Nana and I made a special shopping trip to start buying anything that was little, sweet and pink. After watching you grow this year, I know that you and I will share a special bond forever. I love you so much and I can see our future together as mother and daughter. We are so blessed to have you in our family sweet girl. You are so many things: sweet, smart, sassy, ornery, strong-willed,beautiful. We love everything you are. We are so blessed to watch you continue to grow from our baby girl to a toddler. Always know that you are a piece of our family that we never knew was missing. When you came into our lives, our family became a little more perfect. We love you to the moon Puddin!
