She's six, and while my brain knows it is true, somehow, I can't believe it. Six years of this little girl, who is suddenly looking and acting so grown up. I keep thinking about what I want to say in her annual birthday letter, and honest-to-goodness, I haven't yet found the words to convey it all. I never could have imagined I could love someone else so much until I became mama, and she was and is the perfect little girl to have made me a mama. I adore her with every piece of my soul, am so, so proud of the little person she is, and I just can't believe she's six. Six. I'll keep searching within for the words for her birthday letter, but for now, just this. Six. Six years of my Sammie B, six years of magic, six years of awesome.
I'm a mom, wife, and lawyer. The roles conflict sometimes, and I'm still trying to figure out how to navigate all three. Never imagined "mom" would feel so fabulous, or that doing it all would be so hard . . . this blog chronicles my attempts to "do it all" (and trying to figure out what that even means).
My little family:
Sammie B - my "late pre-term" baby girl, who has an infectious smile, magical laugh, and amazing personality. She melts me every single day. Because she has cerebral palsy (with resulting motor and vision challenges) sweet Sammie B works harder than any little girl should ever have to. As the lucky parents to this amazing little girl, we'll stop at nothing to enable and empower her to be her VERY best self.
- Mia - the newest addition. She was just born (full-term!) in October 2011, and we are just figuring her out. We are already head over heels in love with her (and her fiery little temper!)
-B - the husband, daddo, man behind the momttorney that is me.
