The Many Faces of Frances Moon | Happy 2nd Birthday!

Nov 25, 2015

As I sit here typing this I feel myself getting emotional.  Today is Frances Moon’s second birthday.  I no longer have a baby anymore I have a toddler.  I know everyone says it but the years really do fly by once you have children.  It feels like yesterday I was checking into the hospital a day after my due date to be induced.  I still remember waiting too long to get the epidural and feeling probably more than I should when I delivered her because she came so quickly. and then holding her in my arms for the first time, still shocked and amazed I had a daughter.  You see I pictured myself with all boys. I honestly didn’t think I would have a daughter.  I am so close to my mom and sister that I didn’t worry about not having a daughter but a part of me still longed one. Then God answered my prayers in the form of Frances Moon.

Frances Moon you are a true spit fire just like your namesake.  I know my Mimi ( the real Frances Moon ) is smiling down from heaven watching you.  These days your favorite words are no, no idea, and Frances.  You love to eat anything and everything but your favorite food food is probably cheese. You get that from your Mama:)  You love your baby dolls.  You take them everywhere we go.  We can’t leave the house without baby and her bottle.  It warms my heart how much you love them.  You also love horses, dogs, dancing and coloring. 

No one else has a personality quite like you. You are sassy and opinionated and sweet all at once. You always make the funniest faces so I had to document them in honor of your second Birthday.

Frances Moon I love to you the moon and back again a million times over.  Happy 2nd Birthday my sweet girl.

Thank you to Lucy Cuneo for capturing the birthday photos of Frances.
