It's not the end, it's a new beginning...

As this day finally comes to an end, I can look back on the past year and honestly say I did the best I could at being a first time mom. There have been ups and downs, but as a family we've dealt with them head on and together. I see in my daughter the most well behaved little girl I could ever hope to have the privilege of being called Mom by. Everyday she does something new to amaze me,whether it  be saying a new word for the first time  or reaching a milestone like walking over the past few weeks. A year ago today I could never have imagined how rewarding and incredible a journey motherhood would turn out to be. It's sort of bittersweet to see her getting older no matter how gradual it is, but at the same time realizing that as she gets older I will get to experience the untold joys of watching a child grow up.I'll end this by saying that my daughter is such a joy to me that I couldn't possibly be any prouder of the person she is becoming as her unique personality beings to shine through.She never fusses unless she sincerely needs something, and no one is ever a stranger. I hope that she remains true to herself as she grows and never conforms to any ideals of society that won't allow her to continue to be happy being herself.
