Our attempt at trying to get a wiggly one-year old to sit still for pictures!

We should just buy her wrapping paper for her birthdays from now on, she was really excited about it.

Happy first Birthday to Reagan and Eden!!! Your Mommy and Daddy LOVE you more than the world.

Dear Reagan and Eden,

I remember August 2nd, 2010 so vividly. Your Dad and I were relaxing in my hospital room thinking it would be an uneventful day. I breathed a sigh of relief from the high blood pressure scare the day before but shortly after my MD entered saying that I was too sick to carry you both anymore. My blood pressure was too high, my pre-eclampsia was getting out of control, I was at risk for a stroke or seizure and my liver and kidneys weren’t functioning correctly. I remember pleading with tears in my eyes for a few more days, I was so afraid because you were both too little to be born that day. After some crazy events, but a smooth c-section, Reagan you entered the world at 4:22pm and Eden at 4:23pm. I was thrilled when your Daddy told me that Eden was bigger than we expected. I wasn’t able to touch you both for at least 4 more hours because I had to be in recovery for my blood pressure. That day, our lives changed forever. Our hearts were filled with more love than we ever thought possible. It was a scary day but an amazing day. We feel so blessed to be given the gift from God of becoming parents.

You girls are the most beautiful, perfect, brave, amazing little girls any Mommy could ever ask for. I feel so blessed to have had almost 8 months you, my sweet baby Eden. I miss you more and more every day. I will never forget you and I love you more than the world. Reagan, I love that you turned one today and that you are a growing beautiful little girl. I love you more than the world.

Happy 1st Birthday Reagan! Happy 1st Heavenly Birthday Eden!

Love always and forever,

Momma and Daddy
