She’s One.

My squishy Emma June. Where has this year gone?


My ‘first born to me’ yet the fourth child I have been privileged to love as my own. Knowing I get to be your mom forever, since day one was a new feeling for me. I am sure other foster-bio moms can relate… I carried you in my body yet I have had to remind myself that there is zero possibility of me not getting to be your mom. How did I get so lucky???

Seriously. Thank you God for blessing me with Emma June.

You wake up every morning with a huge smile on your face. You are an animal lover like your dad. You love your older brother and just want to squeeze your baby brother. You have a love/hate relationship with your ‘six months older yet smaller’ brother. Watching you two interact is my absolute favorite.


You have your dad’s beautiful eyes and his curly hair, otherwise you are my mini and that makes my heart so happy.  I cannot wait to make you wear matching outfits with me from Laced N Grace. You are so sweet, smart and getting sassier by the day. You are my easy one. Your personality is so chill and you love to sleep. You are wearing 12-18 month clothes, only in a size 3 shoe, still just two bottom teeth and you are officially walking and trying to catch that ‘older yet smaller’ brother.


Emma June you are our rainbow baby and the most perfect gift we could imagine. I hope to one day be like you.

So much love packed into one year. And this is just the beginning.


Happy first birthday my baby love.
