3 minutes and 30 seconds after you were born on August 5, 2019, at 8:54am, I got to officially meet you. It was the happiest moment of my life, and I’m tearing up as I write this, as I do every time I remember what it felt like to finally become a mom. Your mom. It’s the highest honor to have you trust me with carrying you and helping you grow up.
