Eighteen months have passed since I became a mom. It’s gone so quickly, and yet, every time I look into this face, I am reminded of how grateful I am for my calling as a mom.

She’s at the point where every day she puts something new out there–an action, a word, an imitation, or her own little quirk. She gets it, and for the most part, it’s reflections of teachings Chad and I have taught her. It’s amazing, and she’s amazing. She’s smart, vivacious, beautiful, and oh-so-sweet. She’s pretty patient, quiet, and loves other kids. She opens up once she’s comfortable in a social situation and loves to be the center of attention.

Basically, she’s perfect and we love her.
