14 Years Ago.......

My baby girl was born. 8 lbs 10 oz. 20 inches long. 7:12 A..M. It seems like a lifetime ago........little did we know the ride we were about to embark on. She has brought joy into our lives, and has made even the littlest things seem big.....important. We have learned to never take things for granted.....be happy in the everyday, seemingly ordinary things. She has taught us patience.....probably more than I ever thought I had in me. She tugs at my heartstrings every single day......her struggles, her successes. At times my heart breaks for her, other times it swells so big, I think it might burst. 14 years of looking at this sweet angelic face.......14 years of hearing her sing songy voice......14 years of hearing her giggle through her toes.......14 years of hugs and kisses, and the feeling that you are the most important being in her world. 14 years ago my baby girl was born.



Happy Birthday Cortney!
