Happy 6 Birthday Marina

My little girl is 6 years now. Wow. They do grow up way too fast and now that my little one becomes my not so little one anymore, I begin to wonder what an amazing journey it has been.  You know, raising little ones.  The whole experience of raising children has been such an wonderful journey.  It's been hard sometimes but it's the one thing I am most proud of.  I don't want them to grow up yet at the same time I do.  I have so much to look forward to.

Marina is my "surprise baby" because I didn't plan on getting pregnant.  Well, I wasn't thinking of pregnancy at the time I found out I was pregnant with her.  We had just bought a new house and were in the middle of moving in and painting every single room and I was going though what I consider a very busy time in my life both physically and mentally.  I was drained with everything I was going through and then when I thought I must be late due to the stress I was going through, surprise! I remember thinking "how and when?" over and over and over again.

My surprise baby was also my most difficult pregnancy.  At times I worried if I would be able to carry the whole pregnancy though due to my extreme back pain from an injury.  There were times I could barely walk and many times I cried myself to sleep due to the pain.  I wouldn't even take Motrin because I didn't want to hurt her in any way, so I just toughed it out.

Now I see my beautiful babygirl turning 6 and I know everything is always worth it.  Everything related to motherhood is worth it and the most beautiful gift I could ever be given.  Only God knows how much I love them and how grateful I am to be given the blessing to be their mother.  Happy beautiful beautiful!  I look forward to turning old and enjoying so many more birthdays with you.  I hope that when you become an adult you always come see me on your birthday.  I don't want to miss a single one.

Naturally she had a UNICORN party because she's awesome like that. It's all about the unicorns right now.  They are hotter than anything else so I found it fitting.  I found these birthday items at Target and I found this super cute cake topper on Amazon super cheap and you can find it here:
