It was just a blink ago that I fast-walked the Newport boardwalk with a growing belly. I talked to God and some days had questions on the others, I would stop to throw up my lunch. Her little legs kicking was one of the greatest feelings I have ever experienced. The time and the place made zero sense. A one bedroom home, a brand new marriage of two kiddos with big plans.
She came on the 23rd of March, her exact due date. Precise and full of fierce passion, we have our hands and hearts full and wouldn't change it for the world.
Never has there been something that made such little sense but so much sense at the same time. I grew the most in her few years of life. She taught us how to give and love and be wild. I never knew the love a mama was capable of until I met my little Reese.
It hasn't been perfect and it never will be. It has been full, jam packed with dance parties and laughter and figuring it out.
Reese Mae, thanks for being wild and compassionate. For being right on time and for adding spice and adventure to our lives. You are the perfect one for us and God knew. He always does.
Our times watching you twirl in the kitchen in your princess dress have been some of the most tender moments of my life. The way you love your brother makes my life complete. You'll always be the one who made me a mama and I couldn't be more proud of you, baby girl.
