My Firstborn

Made this layout for the Fancy Pants Challenge sponsored by Buzy Bee. Requirements for the challenge were: use materials from any of the following lines of Fancy Pants: Celebrate, Sweet Spring or About a Boy; & title should include the word "first." Here's my layout:

Journaling goes:
Dearest Julia,
Having you in my life will always be one of the greatest blessings in my life. We went through a lot when you were in my tummy. I had to go through surgery for an ovarian cyst when I was just 5 months pregnant with you. This caused me to undergo
a little bit of pre-term labor but you were a strong baby! I will never forget the sleepless nights when you were still small. Finding the right lullaby to put you to sleep was a challenge for me but it was well worth it. You are now almost 6 years
old & we have gone through a lot as a family. You now have a little sister to love, to care for, & to play with. I am not a perfect MOM, you are my firstborn child & I know I will make some mistakes. Yes, I sometimes lose my patience & I know I hurt your feelings too but I hope you understand that this doesn’t mean I love you any less. Each day we share together is a learning experience for the both of us. You continue to amaze me with your ways & I will always be thankful to the Lord for blessing me with a daughter like you. I hope that you grow up knowing & feeling that I love you infinitely!
