5 Lessons My Daughter Has Taught Me

By Danielle |

I could just eat her!

I never thought in all my life I would be the mother of a little girl. When we learned Addison was in fact a her I cried tears of joy on video and laughed hysterically as my husband had the ultrasound tech double, and triple check.

The pregnancy taught me a lot, and her birth taught me even more. About myself, life, my body, the list goes on. But now as I sit here only 6 days away from her first birthday I am looking at all the deeper lessons she has taught me. Not only just as a mother, but as a woman, a daughter and a human.

I am sure as she continues to grow she will be able to teach me so much more than just the simple stuff too. She is such a bright spirit and she certainly is going to take right after her big brothers.

She is already a huge clown.
She has a smile that could brighten up the darkest day.
And a laugh that could just melt you into a puddle of mush right where you stand.

Ok all the sappy stuff to the side… now all the things she has taught me!

A Smile is Worth a Thousand Words

I don't know what I would do without her!

    Beautiful post. Seriously! You made me tear up.

    We didn’t think we could have kids.
    Four 1/2 years later, my daughter was born.
    So I can totally relate.
