goodnight baby girl

By Family, Holidays, Kids, Moldova 2 Comments

tonight i laid my baby girl down to sleep for the last time.

 

yeah, yeah, i know. tomorrow she will only be a day older.

 

but she will be one.

 

and mamas out there know what i am feeling tonight.

 

i don’t know if mercy is my last baby or not…which is why i am so thankful that my own mama has been reminding me from day one to enjoy every moment {even the exhausting parts} like they are my last.

 

so whether or not i have another baby to rock to sleep someday, tonight i took my time snuggling and kissing my baby girl. because i know tomorrow she is going to wake up a little older.

 

gulp.

 

goodnight, mercy girl. see you when you are one!

 

p.s. sorry for the fuzzy phone pictures.
p.p.s. i do realize she is wearing christmas pjs. they are surprisingly thin. and they still fit. so why not?
p.p.p.s. check back tomorrow for a special photo montage of the birthday girl!
p.p.p.p.s. but a little video to hold grandma and grammie over for now
