My beautiful, sweet Aria Rae, today you are a whole year old and I cannot believe how time has flown!
It seems like just a few weeks ago that I was holding you for the first time, not quite sure of you and wondering how I was going to do this motherhood thing. Those first few weeks of getting to you know you, snuggling on the couch and watching you sleep in your cot were heaven.
It’s such a stark contrast of what you are like these days: a complete busy body who is constantly on the move. Your love to explore and unpack everything that you can (sidekick Moose in tow) has me on my toes and running around but I love to watch you discover new things every day.
You have the most delicious personality: full of spunk and laughter, the most mischievous grin and an incredibly un-lady like laugh that I absolutely adore. You bring such happiness to our lives each and every day and fill our hearts with such immense joy.
As you have grown and developed each month, you have taught me so many valuable lessons, which without you I doubt I would have learnt.
Thank you for being my sweet baby girl, I hope that you feel the incredible amount of love that I have for you every single day.
