The Best Gift I've Ever Received

It probably comes as no surprise that I consider our baby girl, getting to be Ellie's mom, to be the best gift I've ever received.  As a mom, the love you feel for your child is unparalleled.  There is really no good way to describe it that would even do it justice.  My heart is so. full. every single day knowing that she's all ours.  I know being a parent isn't for everyone, but I hope that if it's something you wish for in the future, you get to experience it yourself because there is really nothing like it and really nothing better in the world. 

Lately, I've been thinking back to last December when I was pregnant with Ellia and playing "All I Want for Christmas is You" over and over again to my little baby bump. We found out that we were having a girl the week before Christmas at my 18 week anatomy scan.  All I could think about prior to that appointment, and really throughout the whole pregnancy, was that I just wanted was a healthy baby. After hearing our baby was growing perfectly, it hit me that we were having a GIRL. I had a pretty strong feeling that we were having a boy since the beginning of my pregnancy.  I was very much looking forward to a little man, but was super excited to hear we were having a little lady after all.   For as long as I can remember, I've always wanted to have at least one girl and I'm so happy I got my wish.  Ellie's my little girlfriend, and the cutest, sweetest best friend I've ever had.  I'm sure there will come a day when she doesn't like me all the time, but for now she seems to think I'm pretty cool, and the feeling is definitely mutual. :)

  Just having our Ellie with us is enough to make this the merriest Christmas yet. :)

PS.  I'm 110% positive that if we had a baby boy instead, I'd be saying he was the best gift ever...  But I'm 220% positive that Ellie was meant to be and am so happy I got my girl!

PPS. I love my husband, too.  Don't think I forgot about ya... You're a pretty sweet ass gift, too. ;)
