Since I'm your mother, you probably know by now that I'm not really a "romantic" person. I find some of it so over-the-top that it makes me cringe and feel icky. It's just not me.
But I do belive, one hundred percent, in love at first sight.
All sorts of people will say "there's no such thing", but they are wrong.
On January 25, 2010, a tiny, naked, precious, baby girl was put onto my chest. I looked down at her and a flood of one emotion came over me - love.
I didn't know you. I had never seen you before. And yet I loved you immediately, I loved you in that moment and in all of the moments since.
Even when I'm tired and impatient. Even when you've said "Mommy" eighty-three times before nine a.m. Even when you put your whole hand in your cup of milk causing it to overflow onto the table and then onto the floor.
I still love you. You are my favourite little girl in the whole world.
And if someone ever tells you "there's no such thing as love at first sight"; just let your heart smile, because you know there is.
Love you forever,
