Happy Birthday Keira Dawn!

I Carry Your Heart With Me
E.E. Cummings

I carry your heart with me
I carry it in my heart
I am never without it
Anywhere I go you go, my dear; and whatever is done by only me is your doing, my darling
I fear no fate
For you are my fate, my sweet
I want no world
For beautiful you are my world, my true
And it's you are whatever a moon has always meant and whatever a sun will always sing is you Here is the deepest secret nobody knows
Here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide
And this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

I carry your heart
I carry it in my heart


Today you are one year old. I can't believe how fast this year went! You were the tiniest thing I had ever laid my eyes on one year ago today. I felt like I would break your little 5 pound 15 ounce body! You were so sweet with your squeaks and grunts. I felt like I could snuggle with you forever! When we came home, we were all scared about our new adventure, but luckily we figured it all out! I was lucky to get to spend so much time with you while you were so little. We experienced everything together and I couldn't have been more proud of you everytime you discovered something new... smiling, holding up your head, cooing, rolling over, sitting up.

Now you are a toddler! You are a crawling, standing, cruising, talking, big people food eating, playing, cuddling toddler! You are my big girl! I knew that you would change and grow fast, but not this fast. I wish I could keep you my baby girl forver.

Keira I hope that you know how much I love you. You are the brightest star in my sky. You are what I have always dreamed of! I hope that one day when you are all grown up and you have accomplished all your dreams that you can look back and see just what you mean to me.

You are my sweetest pudding pop, my Kiwi, my baby girl. I love you bunches and bunches.

Love, Momma
