Today, my little baby turns three years old!

I never knew how much life could change in three short years. From her making me a mother on Friday, November 23rd, 2012 to learning to take care of someone else’s needs more than my own, to learning more than I thought I ever could.

She has shaped, shocked, surprised, and strengthened me more than I knew anyone could. Pretty surprising that that can come from a tiny human!

Nia, I didn’t think that someone could steal my heart as fiercely as you have done, but you have. And you always will.

Happy Birthday to my little angel who I love more than the stars in the sky!! XOXO

So something exciting went on this past Monday: we moved!! Today’s post will focus on that because I have a few…
