I really don’t believe I could find the words to accurately portray how I feel today. When it comes to Emma, I’ve come close to overusing excited to describe her arrival, but today, that isn’t even enough. Excited. Overjoyed. Absolutely head over heels for the baby girl who is my best friend’s daughter and my goddaughter. That barely begins to cover it.
Danielle, I couldn’t be more in awe of you. You are beyond amazing and will, without a doubt, be a phenomenal mother. You already are. Rick, you are going to be an incredible father. I know she’s already wrapped around your finger, and for good reason.
Happy birthday, sweet Emma. You couldn’t possibly be a more beautiful and perfect baby. Your parents waited a long time for this day (actually, we all did), and we all love you so very, very much.
