Happy Birthday, My Baby Girl!!!

This day is forever marked in my heart.
I met and fell in love with my Baby Girl.

She was one of ‘those’ newborns; had a tough time figuring out night from day. Night after night, week after week, month after month…she would not sleep through the night. So I held my baby close, rocking her while I sang, “There’s a hole in my bucket” over and over and over and over…

As all babies do, she grew up. A tomboy, who at the age of three; climbed and became stuck in a Crabapple tree. She played tee-ball and would step to bat and wiggle her booty… it was her warm-up routine. My Baby Girl grew into a beautiful teenager and a caring person.

Her inner beauty and compassion are her greatest of gifts. She is now a Labor & Delivery nurse, caring for the newborns. I am so very proud of all her accomplishments. She is a supportive wife and a loving mother to my grandgirl. I remember whispering to her as she was being wheeled out to deliver her daughter, “You will now know how deeply I love you.”

My daughter and I danced to the song, “You Can’t Lose Me” at her wedding. These are our words…

"You can't lose me
Bet your life
I am here and I will always be
Just a wish away
Wherever you go
No matter how far
My love is where you are
You won't be lost if you believe
You can't lose me"



Happy Birthday, Baby Girl!!!
You are forever etched in my heart; always loved deeply.

You can't lose me!

I forgot to mention, when I sang it to her, it was the 'personalized' version...Instead of Liza, I sang her name and instead of Henry, I sang with the name Mommy.
It's a mom-thing :)
