This is how I spent my golden birthday. Cuddling my precious baby!
Remember when 25 was old? I mean... I thought that was ancient! I remember being a senior in high school and hearing a teacher admit she was 25. SO OLD!!
Tomorrow I turn 26. TWENTY SIX.
I'm older than old!
Except I don't feel old. You know? Watching the numbers go up is kind of painful. Especially since I know what the "young ones" think about my ancient age *shudder* ha!
So I thought the best way to say goodbye to 25 is to recap my 5 favorite moments from my golden year.
1- The moment I made the connection that Mia was giving me a kiss. Her wide open, slobbery mouth landed on my nose and she kept bobbing her head (spreading the slobber) over my nose... until she was done. Then she did it again! That's when I KNEW my baby was giving me a kiss. Heart melted and slobber forgotten!
2- My very first day at the spa. It was the perfect golden birthday gift from my husband. HEAVEN!! And yes, it's totally one of my favorite moments last year!
3- Going to Disneyland (and the beach AND baseball games) as a family of 3! Even though Mia had no clue what was going on, and she won't remember it, it made me SO excited for our future family vacations and the excitement that kids bring into every moment!
4- The eve of Mia's first birthday I was feeding Mia and she fell asleep in my arms!! It's like she knew my momma heart was having a hard time coming to grips with how quickly she grew. Those extra snuggles were extra precious that night! (She hasn't fallen asleep in my arms again since that night!)
5- Every single moment it hit me that Eric and I created Mia. We are parents to a perfect, loving, happy baby girl and it STILL blows my mind that she came from us! Our gratitude to Heavenly Father for trusting us with Mia's sweet spirit is never ending! We love being her parents!
