Five Awesome Years

The day dakota was born my life was forever changed, forever blessed, she blew the ceiling off how much love I thought I had in me. The love she opened up in me, I remember, was so overwhelming. I felt capable of loving everyone and everything more than I had known before she came.
Over the last five years I have gotten to know this little girl, this little person who is absolutely amazing. She loves life, she loves people, she loves her family and friends. I watch her and think how can I be more like her.
One of the greatest moments in my life was when dakota was born, I felt so powerful so alive so in-love. But another great moment in my life was being in labor with leela with dakota.
Having her there was so important to me, she held my hands she rocked with me, she was beautiful. And now watching her everyday with leela, it is so special. Every morning dakota wants to be there when leela wakes up, she wants to make leela smile and having this daughter this beautiful person share her love with her sister warms my heart.
I love you dakota lillie moore for so many reasons. Thank you for choosing my to be your mommy.
