Happy Birthday Monster

I started this post weeks ago.
I had tons of words and sentences.
I couldn't stop - none of it seemed like enough.

Then I realized - there could ever be enough word to describe this moment...


or this one...


or this one.



Eva Monster,

You have made us happier than I could have ever imagined...
made us better than we ever could have been...
made our heart grow bigger than we thought possible...
made our marriage a family.

We thought that the two of us made you...
but now we know you really made us.

Last night we were talking after you fell asleep...
about how amazing and fun this year has been...
and how tough it really wasn't...
and how much more fun we have waiting on us.

Thank you little monster.

Happy Happy Birthday!!

All our love,
Your mommy and daddy

You're so right though. No words can ever accurately describe those first moments of mother meets baby. So perfect <3
