10 Years

Aaack, 10 years ago today my Emma was born. I have a hard time putting my feelings into words. Emma, is everything I imagined she would be. I remember looking into her little eyes after she was born, and just knew as every mother does when they see that baby for the first time that something wonderful has just occurred.
There are so many things I wished I’d known, so many things I might have done differently, but it’s been an adventure and so worth the time invested.
Emma is so wonderful, she’s beautiful, and smart, I have seen her grow into a little lady and I couldn’t be more proud of her and her accomplishments. She is so great with her little brother and sisters, she so helpful with them and has learned so many little mother skills. One attribute that I think about when I think of Emma is her honesty. She has proven herself over and over, and has never given me reason to doubt her. I know that she is only 10, but when I think that I only have 8 more years with her until she is considered an adult I want to freeze time, or at least slow it down. I’m going to try and live more in the moment, and enjoy the ride with her, because it goes too quickly.
Happy Birthday Emma!!!
