Three years ago today I gave birth to the sweetest tiny human in the world. Being a mom was terrifying at first, mostly because I was very young, doing it all on my own, and she was a very sick baby for the first year of her life - she had a heart defect that thankfully corrected itself while being in the NICU, among other complications - but I can honestly say that motherhood is the greatest thing to ever happen to me, and I’m thankful for every day that I have her in my life. There’s nothing like her laugh and smile and morning cuddles and seeing her learn, and I wouldn’t trade these moments for anything. Time really does fly by once you have a little one and I can’t believe that my baby is already three. Happy birthday to Emma Renée! :’)
