Today is my Birthday

Today is my birthday!  I thought last year's birthday would be my best birthday ever!  One year ago today, I was 7 weeks pregnant & I had my very first ultrasound at my RE's office.  I was terrified and excited.  My husband got to come with me.  I remember that our appointment was in the morning because we had a birthday/celebration lunch afterwards.  It was a glorious day!  I got to hear that beautiful sound that I longed to hear for such a long baby's heartbeat!  I was overwhelmed with joy, but also still nagged by fear.  Here is the picture of the tiny dot that brought me so much joy a year ago.

Just a tiny little dot that the arrow is pointing to.  So much hope from a tiny little dot.  With a lot of prayer and a roller coaster of emotions, that tiny dot grew into the sweet girl that I obsess over everyday.  I thought last year was my best birthday ever.  I even told my husband that nothing could top it!  I was wrong!  This year I feel just as much joy, if not more.  This year I have this present to love on!
This is the best birthday ever!  I get to spend it with the best little girl in the world.  She is the most important person in my life.  I just can't get enough of her!  What a difference a year can make!  My baby went from a tiny heart beating dot to the big ball of laughs that she is now.  I am so thankful!
