Happy birthday, my little princess!
365 days ago, we were anxiously waiting to find out when we would meet you. Little did we know that that night at 11:48 pm our lives would change forever.
Seeing you that night made me a believer in “love at first sight,” LB. You are my single greatest accomplishment & I am so thankful for every day with you. This last year has been so full of happy moments. I can’t even remember what my days were without you. Your hilarious giggles, toothy smiles, and bear-like snuggles make my heart grow with more love every day. I am so proud of the beautiful, silly, happy baby that you have been and continue to be, Mash’Allah. I cannot wait to see your personality grow stronger this year. You are meant to make this world yours!
Also, congratulations on surviving a year with your Daddy & I and our weird parenting methods! Thanks for letting us feed you adult food, whisk you off to travel with us (literally from when you were approximately 2 weeks old), and for always dancing when we turn on the music. Thank you for wearing headbands like a champ, for giving hugs at the most random moments, and for the belly laughs after rough days. Thanks for teaching us about unconditional love, how to have more patience, and how to turn sleepless nights into endless cuddle sessions that last until the morning.
We’re the luckiest parents in the world to have you, Little Bean.
I hope we always do our best by you.
We love you forever and ever, baby! Happy first birthday!
Mama & Daddy
