What a long journey it has been to meet you.  On this day, the day you came into this world, I am 25 years old.  I am just about to finish graduate school, have been married to your dad for 3 years, we have 3 crazy dogs (you'll see what I mean!), and am scared to death about introducing you to life.  You came unexpectedly into our lives in August of last year, but really...that was probably the best way to come.  You rocked our world into something entirely fresh, new, and different.  Its hard to imagine that this day is the start of our journey together.  How can a day, something so small and fleeting, have such a huge impact on someone's life?  I often have wondered ever since we found out about you what our journey as a family might be like.  

A few heads up:
-Your Dad is probably going to try to make you a Panthers fan for life, yeah...starting TODAY.  He is not going to waste ANY time.
-Your sister Penny is probably going to smell you and stare you down for a while before she figures out what you are.  But prepared.  You are probably going to be her new sleep buddy.  
-CeCe & Aunt KK will have you dressed in the cutest clothes and spoil you rotten 
-Your Lollie & BB will probably try to smother you with hugs and kisses.
-Your Joe Daddy will probably try to make you a Steelers fan in spite of your day.  
-Your Pop will try to teach you huge words and read the dictionary to you (you may end up like me one day and wished you had listened if you end up taking the GRE)
-Your Grandnana, Papa, Nana Dot, Mamaw Muriel, & Mamaw Betty will probably give you advice and tell you all the important things you need to know about life (even though you probably don't understand what they are saying right now...they like to tell stories and give advice)
-Your Aunt Karen, Uncle Todd, Aunt Kim, Aunt Brenda, Aunt Lois, Aunt Joyce, Uncle Shannon, Aunt Kaye (yes you have a lot of Aunts lol) will all be a blast to hang out with...and PROBABLY spoil you rotten just like your other two wild and crazy aunts mentioned at the top;)  I think we are in trouble with the spoiling...
-Uncle Brody will try to teach you how to be a daredevil and do crazy stunts and tricks...just make sure you check with me and your dad first!  (SO weird to say stuff like that!)
-As for all of your dad and I...well, our friends?  Don't listen to a word they say about us!  None of it is true.  
-And me...well...I have had MANY years of education regarding your speech & language skills...prepare to be read to, highly engaged, and overstimulated any chance I get!  I will also probably try to convince you to love all little animals (especially dogs), Christmas, and anything Snoopy.'s worth a shot!

And with that...welcome to the family;)

I pray that I will be the best mom in the world.  I already know you have the best dad in the world.  You have a family head over heels in love with you already, and a bunch of our friends who are crazy about you as well.  But who loves you the most?  Jesus.  Never forget that.  That is the most important thing I can teach you about life.  I hope you can always look back and realize just how blessed and loved you really are.  You see... God has been preparing all of us just for your arrival.  We didn't know it, but I know He wants to make sure we take great care of you.  I promise to try my hardest, just please be patient as I learn:)

I love you more than words can express, to the moon & back again.
Your (VERY new) Mommy:)
