The next few months flew by very fast for us. I felt like you were in such a hurry to meet your milestones which sometimes made mama and papa sad :(...we used to joke that you grew about 2 extra months in utero. Because the day after you were born you lifted your head on your own, some of your main milestones I recorded; at 3 weeks old you rolled from front to back; and at 3 months old you were sitting up; at 5 months old you started to crawl and you walked at 9 months. You are an amazing little girl.
But sadly I've been working on trying to switch you to regular milk without success since I plan to stop taking the pump to work. I am freaking out because you still will not take milk, or toddler formula, or flavored milk- just breast milk and regular food. Something tells me though that you will adjust better than me. I will take the pump but leave it in my car because I'm not sure I might follow through. I hope you are proud of your mama because we made it to your one year old bday and I will continue to nurse you after work for as long as the supply stays. I feel so guilty about doing this though so I plan to show you this letter especially if you decide to opt out of nursing my future grand children.

You may look just like your papa but I see some of my personality in you. You love to laugh even when you are sad. The other day you started to throw a full on tantrum and I just cracked up laughing and you stopped and joined in and forgot whatever it was you were throwing a tantrum for. I'm sorry chica, your mama does not have the heart to spoil kids so whenever I show you some tough love just remember that it comes from all the love mama has for you.

You have changed me so much and I think of you every minute; I hate it when I'm not with you and I get jealous of those who get to spend time with you. I have had to give up some of my hobbies and not care as much because I love spending time with you. Like I am writing this instead of going to bed which means I will be very tired tomorrow but it is the only time I have to do anything because you are in bed. We love watching you grow and your laugh is infectious. You can turn a bad day for me into the best day ever and I know I do the same for you. I know all the funny things to do to get you to chuckle. I look forward to your continuous growth. Nda, if you ever grow up and feel that you wished we were different just know that I did my very best and you are blessed and loved. May God bless you with many more years, good health, a fun child hood ... Happy Birthday!!!
