Dear Annabelle…

Dear Annabelle Rose,

Being your mother has already changed me in ways you’ll never know until you have a baby of your own one day. Each day is a dream and the love I feel for you is indescribable and sometimes seems unreal. My favorite time of the day is when you wake up in the morning. You open your eyes slightly and look around the room searching for Mom and Dad and we are always there looking at you to see what you’ll do next. Then your lips curl up on one side giving us a tiny smile that makes our hearts melt. Every day spent with you is a gift from God above. Only something greater than us could create your laughter, your bright eyes, your curious spirit, and your gentle demeanor. You truly are perfect in every way and we are in awe that we get to be your parents.

I hope you all have an amazing Mother’s Day filled with love and family!

    Aw Hayley this is so sweet! And happy belated Mother’s Day. I love watching your vlogs on YouTube. Your new intro sequence with those clips of Annabelle are SO adorable. I love the one where she’s laying on the bed and Doug is playing with her and she has those adorably big, brown eyes so wide and she gives him that cheeky little smile. It’s so adorable!
