Abiella is 2!!!! (almost.)

Too many emotions to put into words right now.  The fact that I will be celebrating my daughter's first birthday at HOME tomorrow is almost too much to take in.  It's been a festivities packed weekend... celebrating with family on both Saturday and Sunday... But Monday, is THE DAY. Tomorrow, Sean and I will cheers to Abi, eat cake, help Abi open presents, do all of Abi's favorite things, and bask in the fact that our first child is having her first birthday in our home... together. 

It's a miracle. 


I never knew if she would be home for this day
- and she is.
So, SO thankful. 

I leave you with bits and pieces from a card Abi got from one of my best friends... it says a lot of what I want to say... but better. 

Happy 2nd Birthday Abiella!!!!!! WE LOVE YOU!!!!

"2 hands that belong to you, and that you are discovering can do so many great things!
2 hour dvd of Beyonce goodness. Enough said.
2 of your best friends right across the street. Harrison and Preston love you!
2 M's and 2 G's that are going to love you like no other. I'm bringing a picture of you for them to see when Josh and I visit in January!
2 times the grandparents to snuggle you whenever you want to cuddle.
2 ears to listen to your daddy's voice singing to you. Front row seat to endless private concerts? Lucky you!
2 legs to kick, kick, KICK! 
2 buttons to push on your mama's phone to call me whenever you want - "Favorites" and "Auntie Megan". Back when I was a kid you had to memorize 7 digits!
2 baby fat cheeks for me to smooch on.
2 times the bravery.
2 times the fight.
2 times the heart.
2 times the everything."

WE LOVE YOU, ABIELLA!! Happy 2nd Birthday!!!
