Well you'll be 2 in June. I can't believe that! You are such a little ball of energy. Sometimes you make me want to pull my hair out, but most of the time I just look at you and think "wow I can't believe how BIG you are getting and how much I freaking love you!" When you were born I dreamed of this day, when we would worry more about if you ate your veggies than worrying about whether you would make it through the day alive. I prayed for the day that I could bring you home and just love you more than any person could love another. I begged Heavenly Father to let that happen. There were days where I really didn't think it was going to happen.
I remember when you were still so small I could see every bone in your body. It would take two nurses to work the wires just right just so I could hold you against my chest. I would hardly move a muscle that whole time holding you because I was so scared the slightest move would break you. I would sing the song "Families Can Be Together Forever" to you when I held you against my chest. I can still remember those little wrinkles on your forehead when you would look up at me with eyes that just knew who I was as I sang that song to you. I was your mommy and I knew that you knew that.
I know you were born a fighter. You had to be. I know Heavenly Father prepared you for that experience. You could see it in your actions that someone was helping you. I knew it then and I know it now that there were angels there helping you, rooting you on. I remember one time as I held you in my arms like a "normal" baby I looked down at you and I asked you if Jesus was there helping you and just at that moment you gave this big smile. I'll never forget that.
Now I can't keep up with you. You are the most social *little* thing ever. You probably don't even weigh 19lbs but you carry yourself like you are a the biggest girl ever. Everyone that knows you comments on how grown up you are for your size. You just couldn't wait to get moving and it hasn't stopped since. I wouldn't have it any other way though. I just wish you wouldn't grow up so fast! I love you little girl and I can't wait to see you accomplish everything you set your heart to do.

day 17- someone you would want to switch lives with for one day and why
I thought about this hard and really I don't want to be anyone else. I like my life the way it is. But I always thought it would be cool to follow the president (really any president) for a day and see what his day was like. I think if anyone did that they would have a lot more respect for the president regardless of who that would be. OR Donald Trump so I could spend all his money...then put all the stuff in a time portal to my house. :D
day 18- plans/dreams/goals you have
Well my ultimate dream was to be a mommy. Now that I am a mommy I have another dream and that is to be a social worker. I love to help people and give advice (sometimes its probably not wanted haha). It's just in my nature I guess. I would love to work in either a Children's Hospital or in an adoption agency. I think that would be my dream job. One of my other dreams is to adopt. Chase and I have talked about it a lot and we REALLY REALLY want to! If I got the opportunity to I would be forever grateful. I am currently going through school to get my Bachelors Degree in Psychology. After that I plan to get my Masters in Social Work. I plan to accomplish all of this by the time I am done having kids!
Phew that was long! Why did I agree to do this with my crazy life? Til the next time farewell!
