Happy Birthday To My Baby!

On Friday it's my baby's birthday. She will be two, and I figured that I would write her a tribute now because I don't know if I will have time later on in the week. I love this little girl so much. I never thought that I could love someone the way that I love her (of course I love my husband just as much, but in a different way). She makes me laugh. She's made me cry. She's made me angry (often, actually) and happy and glad and proud. Her smile is sweet. Her laugh is contagious. Her spirit is vibrant. She is perfect. I would not trade motherhood for ANYTHING in the world. I feel like I somewhat know how our Heavenly Father feels about us, although I'm sure that he loves us even more than I love my daughter, which is hard to believe. My goal is to show and tell her that I love her as often as I can so that she never doubts it.

I created a little video for Hannah as a tribute to her for her birthday. I want to cry every time I watch it because she truly brings me so much joy. Here's to you, my Little Miss. Happy Birthday!

This video was beautiful. It made me cry too...probably because my baby is right behind yours on the birthday thing. It is going too fast...they are changing so much everyday and it makes me happy and sad at the same time. Motherhood is indescribable, but you gave it a great description. Happy Birthday Hannah! Wish we could come celebrate!
By the way, I love that she's dancing to that Goofy Movie song...I used to totally crush on Max when he sang that song because I thought he had such a good voice. Nerd...I totally had a crush on a cartoon. I just had to tell you because it brought up a funny memory! :)
I am going to call you back, calling me back, soon! Sorry I missed your call!

That's a really sweet video. It made me teary eyed and I don't even have a kid! Perfect song choice. I can't wait to make a video like that for my children

My speakers are unplugged so I didn't have any sound but the video was darling. I can't believe how fast these past two years have gone. She is a beautiful little girl! I'm so glad I get to be there to celebrate her 2nd birthday.

Tears! So precious! I loved the progression from you being pregnant to now! Crazy how they grow. Congratulations Maran for being such a great mom and congratulations Hannah on your birthday! (2 more weeks 'til my due date, eek).
