2 years ago tonight, I was in the hospital preparing to meet you first thing in the morning. I could barely sleep. Daddy was in the uncomfortable hospital bed with me, trying his best to comfort my anxious heart. Oh how long and hard we prayed for you, baby girl. We spent most of the pregnancy unsure if we would ever get to see your face this side of heaven. It was a long night of waiting and yearning to finally meet you.
175 days of bed rest had led up this moment.
You were SO worth it.

I just visited your room a few minutes ago so that the Number Fairy could decorate your door with the #2.
Bittersweet…but definitely more so sweet than bitter.
I love being your mommy and feel honored to have the privilege of watching you grow up.
I can’t wait to celebrate your birthday with you in the morning! Sleep peacefully, Charlee girl.
