My Youngest Daughter is Officially 18! How We Celebrated Her Big Day

 

 

My little girl is not so little anymore.

 

 

My youngest daughter – my ‘Princess Baby’ – turned 18-years old last week! And I couldn’t be more grateful for her, proud of her, and excited about her future!

 

 

Her smile makes me smile. Her heart is pure and true. She’s a great student and an awesome sister. But most of all she’s a super amazing daughter!!

 

As I sit back and reflect, I truly cannot believe that it has been 18 years! Where has the time gone?! It seems like just yesterday that I gave birth to her and held her in my arms for the very first time. When she glared back at me with those adorable eyes that are exactly like her father’s, my heart overflowed with joy. When you were born there was an immediate connection that I can’t describe. I knew that I was in love.

 

Because of the host of complications with the pregnancy and birth of my 2nd child, doctors said that I would not be able to have any more children. My husband and I were devastated, but we held on to our faith that God would bless us with the family we wanted. After years of trying and suffering two miscarriages (the last one happening just days after our pregnancy announcement), my hope started to fade.

 

However, at the very moment when I was about to give up, my follow up exam after the second miscarriage revealed that I was expecting! My husband and I were thrilled! With the help of a phenomenal team of doctors and a ton of faith, our prayers were answered in our little bundle of joy! To this day, I still call her my ‘miracle baby.’

 

My ‘miracle Princess Baby’ has been beyond awesome to raise! She has taught me a lot in the last 18 years. With each passing year, she has become more intuitive, creative, tough, loving and compassionate. Her drive, dedication, and desire to be great never ceases to amaze me. Her growth has helped me grow. And because of that, I know that we both are truly blessed!

 

My Youngest Daughter is Officially 18th! How We Celebrated Her Big Day faith health and home

 

I’m that Mom that usually goes overboard celebrating birthdays, and this year was no exception. To make her 18th birthday extra-special this year, the entire weekend was filled with shopping and photo sessions; and concluded with dinner and a surprise visit to The Selfie Room in St. Louis.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I know that I said it above, but I am so Godly proud of my daughter! As a parent, your hope is that your children will soar and accomplish their deepest goals and dreams. My baby girl is doing just that! I can feel good knowing that she will enter the next chapter of her life as a college student feeling confident and equipped to successfully handle any obstacle that comes her way!

 

Most importantly, she will feel loved.

 

 

To my youngest daughter – my Princess baby – know that you are loved and prayed for always. God has his hand on you and knows your name! And I am proud to be your biggest supporter, your loudest cheerleader, and most of all, your Mom.

 

 

 

Happy 18th Birthday!
