The monkeys UnBirthday

I think I was overdue here he

Around 6 weeks old, my beautiful family
1 or 2 months - lounging at the beach on a sunny day

5 Months - cutest thing ever!8 Months old, trying homemade avocado rolls

I missed my shout out to the monster on December 16th. She was 41 weeks and 1 day, out of me for as long as she was in.

She is amazing.

Life before her seems so meaningless, and unfulfilled. I love my husband, without him I wouldn't be who I am today, and have what I have. He balances me, supports me, loves me unconditionally, he completed me until I had a child ;) our life before her was perfect, but we both agree that now it's magical.

The light of my life, apple of my eye, piece to my puzzle, all those cliche sayings!

Skyla it has been a ride, a dream, a bit of blur.
Thank you for,
not making me have crazy morning sickness
for allowing me to have a healthy safe pregnancy and waddle at 8 months pregnant walking dogs over ice and snow ;)
kicking my ribs, and punching my crotch
crowning for 3 hours, without me really feeling it
being a healthy perfect baby safely born at home
being relaxed, calm and content as a newborn, and sleepy relatively well
nursing like a champ and not causing pain or bumps in the road
good morning smiles, that make my tired eyes wake up, and grumpy mood lift
sleeping so well and not having a problem with cutting the soother out cold turkey
travelling easily and enjoying daily errands and lack of routine
dancing when I sing, even though I know it's not in tune and awful sounding ha
making me miss you only moments after laying you to sleep.

Thank you for being here, for picking us as your family ;) and for being the perfect cheeky little monkey that you are!

I love you so much, I'm so excited to see you grow into a toddler, run around the school yard, ask me for help with your homework, and boy advice when you are a teen, hold your hand and fight back tears when you leave for college, and can't wait to hear you gush about your own bundle of joy...because I get it, I understand that undeniable unconditional love for a little human.

Callista!! Come ON! Give a girl some warning before you write something so sweet and touching! I even got risky and put mascara on the bottom lashes today, now that's all messy!
Congrats on enjoying your little monkey and celebrating all she's worth.
