One year ago today, July 18, at 3:57 a.m. weighing 7 pounds 5 ounces, my precious fancyface was born. You were born in the wee hours of the morning, before the sun was up and surprised us all when you made your grand appearance and we were told you were a baby girl. Throughout my entire pregnancy, I would call you my "little man", to say I was shocked is putting it mildly.
You didn't have a name for 3 days, and we called you baby girl. I finally decided to name you Charleston, after one of the most gorgeous cities that I have been to, and you suit it perfectly- you are beautiful, warm and have an inner light that is indescribable. You smile with your eyes and your eyes light up when you see your Big Brother. You love to laugh, play peek-a-boo and try to keep up and chase your brother. You have brought so much joy, laughter and love to my life fancyface, and I am so happy that God chose me to be your momma.
I have mentioned in my posts before that I never thought I would have a daughter, and when you, my sweet baby girl was born, my life changed forever. My heart grew with love even more than I could of imagined. This past year has gone by too quickly, Happy 1st Birthday to my funny, sweet, beautiful fancyface Charleston!
My mom has called me fancyface since I was a baby, which was 33 years ago. She would call me that everyday, whether I was wearing sweatpants, or covered in mud and sticky ice cream or clean and dressed like a princess, that no matter what I always had a fancy face. The original fancyface nickname was from a character Hope from Days of Lives. My mom always thought I looked like her, dark hair & eyes- a natural beauty. Now, I call you my baby girl fancyface because you look just like me! Fancyface is also the inspiration behind my blog name, Fancy Little Momma!
Happy 1st Birthday my sweet beauty! I love you more than life itself!
