She. Her. My Dream Girl.

My sweet pea is officially 1 years old.  I am so proud of her. Naomi literally makes me laugh every single day of my life. She is amazingly funny and she is so so smart.

It all happens and goes away so fast. I remember when she was so tiny. She was absolutely helpless when I first met her. Now she’s growing more independent with each day. I remember when we first brought her home. It seemed so long ago, but then again, I feel like it was just yesterday. It will all become a blur if you let it. That is why it’s so important for me to make memories in every possible way. I’ve learned to take photos as I am. No fixing myself up. Sometimes my hair may be all over my head. I just smile for the camera. Your babies won’t care what you look like, they just want to see you.

Naomi means more than the world itself to me. I’ve never felt what she makes me feel. With her I’ll always feel important, needed, and accepted. She makes me driven, even on the days when fear over powers my dreams. She encourages me to never settle. She keeps me in line. She gives me structure, not only in teaching her but in teaching myself as well.

She gives me purpose. Everything matters because she makes everything just that much better. Her innocence keeps me guarded. She gives me purpose. I have a reason now. She uplifts me. Even on the days when I’m all out of wack, her smile lets me know that I’m doing something right.

She is my dream girl. And I love her.
