Dear Anna Elizabeth,
Today is our first official Mother's Day together. Technically I counted last year because you were growing very well inside of me, but this year you are here and we get to celebrate together. I assumed I would do this blogging thing better because I wanted you to have a pretty good record of your life. Unfortunately it's been about seven and a half months since I last posted and I'm doing a pretty crappy job with keeping a record. However I take lots of pictures and I post them on Instagram with captions so hopefully we'll be able to put the pieces together and you'll have an idea of your first year. I am so grateful for you for making me your mommy. You are one of my greatest joys. This morning you woke early as you normally do, you ate (you still breastfeed) and then I turned on baby Einstein for you. That is one of your favorite things. If I turn on baby Einstein I can shower, do dishes, and blog! You are growing well. Rachel says you're chubby. She's right. Your legs have rolls in all the right places and you have adorably chubby cheeks and a double chin. You are a very happy and relatively social baby. You enjoy people and don't mind being passed around. You love your daddy! You two have a game where you growl at each other. It's hilarious. You also love your sissy Dalynne. She has lots of games she plays with you. I need you to know that you are loved! You bring so much joy to this dark world. I am convinced that Heavenly Father saved you for "such a time as this". I know that He loves you more than I can possibly express to you. I love you too my Lizzie!
