I am so excited to see you grow into this next chapter of your life. Motherhood will challenge you in ways you never could expect- it will bring you to your highest of highs and lowest of lows. This journey is full of joy, excitement and yet completely terrifying and frustrating- all in one crazy roller coaster of a ride. There will be times that you might feel lost and alone. Full of doubt and just plain scared. But fear not sister- for you are surrounded by family and friends to share this very experience with. On the flip side, you will be filled with so much love, joy, and pride that you are going to feel as if your heart could burst into a million pieces. In either the most joyous of moments or the very saddest parts- and everything in between. Reach out to those around you. Quiet those voices that might cause you to doubt. And just love on this little girl of yours. Be patient and hold her close. You have gracefully entered into this journey we call "motherhood" . I can't wait to see you both explore this world together. There will be twists, turns and mountains to climb, but always remember that the view along the way- is breathtaking.
