This girl is one of the many reasons I am so grateful that Life is not dictated by me. I had no idea when she walked into my life that she would become such an important part of it. She has been a blessing and a gift and I love her so very, very much.
Whitney, you are an amazing young woman, an amazing mamma, and I love you to pieces. You make my heart happy, you make me laugh, and I am so grateful for you. Thank you so for doing this.

I'm thankful for wise, loving grandparents. For always having love in their heart and for never passing judgment, no matter what the situation. For my grandpa always proudly sporting the mohawk I give him as soon as I walk in the door. I've been doing this since before I can remember.
For goofy dads, that make a great resting place for my little one.
For adventurous mother-in-laws that are always there when I'm having a mommy freakout about a rash or a slight fever.
And for moms that are as happy as can be to be called grandma.
For a brother that CONSTANTLY got you in trouble as kids.
And for him growing up to be just as strange as me.
For this very special woman. Her wisdom and her love.
For finding a man who doesn't have a problem going to Disney World for vacation and riding the Tea Cups with me. Who is also just around the best dad any little girl could ask for.
I am most thankful for June 1,2013. Bringing little miss Bella Marie into this world has by far been the highlight of my life.
Those tiny toes.
The little dribble of milk on her face.
Cuddles with daddy on his lunch break.
All the comfy ways to sleep.
For having the opportunity to stay home with my beautiful baby girl for over a year.
For beautiful days made just for playing outside.
For early morning wake up calls from the cutest baby ever.
