3: You, our angel, grew in mommy's stomach for ten months and nine days... Mom carried you around and we were already in love with you, We kept thinking what would you look like? How big would you be? What hair and so on and on and on...then you came out, We couldn't believe we created someone so beautiful, a miracle. Believe it or not but you have taught us so much and changed our perspective of life and we thank you for that, our baby girl. You may out grow our laps, won't need us to feed you, change yourself, and start walking...get sick of our kisses...eventually you're going to be on your own but you will NEVER outgrow that you are in our hearts forever and ever you will always be our BABY. We only want the best for you. make mistakes - its okay....learn from it..stumble and fall, get up and do it again...don't let a locked door block you from your flight. There's always another ticket to your success. Remember this...what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. We may get mad at you sometimes and we may get upset, but that doesn't mean you can't come to us and talk. As a parent, as somebody who will always love their children more than anyone else will always be there to listen, bad or good. We promise to love you forever and ever. Love, Mommy and Daddy
4: You spent the first two weeks of your life in NICU. You had breathing tube in you but it only lasted couple of days then you started to breathe on your own, we were so thrilled! Every day we came to visit we would spend half of the day with you. You are such a beautiful baby.
5: You had your breathing tube out!! For 5 days we were not able to hold you all we could do was touch and stare at you. Yes, your head was swollen but in couple of weeks it all went down. You also had a feeding tube through the nose, when you passed the swallowing test, everything that was on you came off!!
6: Our first family picture!! | You opening one of your eyes for the first time
7: This was our first time being able to hold you and of course I as a mom couldn't hold my tears back, however daddy was so happy.
8: You came home!!! After two weeks staying in the hospital, you finally came home we were so excited! | This was your coming home outfit
9: You LOVED to sleep!! Sleeping is what you did most of the time - when you got older you became more active.
10: ONE month old!!
11: Your first doctor appointment, you didn't really like being naked and touched | The second time you slept through the whole thing!
13: Pacifier was your thing - you absolutely adored it and had a latch that refused to let go | You didn't cry much for the first few days but in the weeks after you started to cry more.
14: My first Food: | My first step: | My first word: | My first tooth: | My first crawl: | My first haircut:
15: ~A mother's love for her child is like nothing else in the world. It knows no law, no pity, it dares all things and crushes down remorselessly all that stands in its path~ | A daughter is a bundle of firsts that excite and delight, giggles that come from deep inside and are always contagious, everything wonderful
