“Hadlea, You are my beautiful baby girl. You are a ray of sunshine to everyone you come in contact with. When I look in your beautiful blue eyes I see all of things you will grow up to be. You are so smart and so independent. I’m so proud to be your mommy. I’m sure, along the way, we will have our fights and fun times, you will love me and hate me all at the same time. But we will get through the hard times and in the end you will still be my baby girl. The one who made me a mommy. You didn’t come with instructions and I didn’t have the best example with my mom, so we’re both learning as we go. I’m doing my best for you. I will always do my best for you. I love you, monkey.
