For 365 days we have been snuggling, sniffing (yes I love the smell of my babies), soothing and loving you our sweet baby sissy! I remember getting the phone call that you were born as if it just happened! The moments of anticipation and excitement as we quickly drove up to the hospital to meet you and hold you are feelings I will never forget. Laying eyes on you for the first time and seeing how completely and utterly perfect you where are forever burnt into my mind! My sweet Lyric you have been the perfect addition to our family and an answer to your big sissy’s prayers (she had been asking and praying for a baby sister before we even knew you were a girl but Jesus knew)! Since your big sister was born I prayed that one day she would get the chance to have a sister of her own and I hoped that she would have the relationship with you that I have with my sister and my dream and hopes have been more than answered! It is so amazing to me how you are a perfect mix of your brother and sister yet you are very much yourself! You would think by now I would know how fast the first year goes but as much as I tried to hold on to every single day with you time moved on too quickly! I am thankful you still snuggle me like you did as a newborn and that you are very much still dependant on me! You are a fearless little dare devil just like your big sister and you have your brothers curly hair! As your mommy my heart has melted on more than one occasion watching your big brother and sister interact with you! You are so close to walking without assistance and you are growing up and changing every single day! You have proven to be my most “needy” baby but I wouldn’t change anything about you! I have no idea if our family is complete now or not but what I do know is that you my sweet angel girl were the perfect addition and will always be my baby no matter what your age is. I have so many dreams and prayers for you as you grow and I have written them out in your journal for your keeping! Whatever you do in life my love be brave, take chances, don’t be afraid to fail, say your sorry without hesitation, love deeply and always know your mommy is here for you and I will always be on your side!
