Luna Rayne is THE most beautiful baby in the world…and I am not just saying that because I am her mother and prone to biased opinions so bleh! But anyways…as of tomorrow, I will be twenty-two years old. I cannot believe how far I have come…it seems like just yesterday I was being born or toddling around or getting made fun of in elementary school or breaking all the rules in high school or boarding a plane to Oklahoma or being free at WOSC or…yada…yada…yada…the point is, May 14 my daughter was born and now I am no longer Ashley Ann…I am forever somebody’s mother. And my body, which was never so hot to begin with, has the stretch marks and extra weight to prove it. Speaking of weight, how is it that I gained seventy-two pounds with this pregnancy and Luna was only a seven pound and one ounce baby and I stepped on the scale yesterday, merely one month after her birth, and I am only down by twenty-six pounds? I still have a lot of weight to lose just to get down to my pre-pregnancy weight, let alone to get down to a healthy weight. But I need to do that, because Luna needs a healthy role model. She needs her mother and father to go for walks on a regular basis and eat healthy meals and prove to her that it fits to be fit…okay so that was lame, but you get the idea. Anyway, I love this little girl with all my hearts and souls and I am looking forward to watching her grow up. I just hope she is happy with the parents she chose… Tim McGraw–Gotta hold on easy as I let you go. Gonna tell you how much I love you, though you think you already know. I remember I thought you looked like an angel wrapped in pink so soft and warm. You’ve had me wrapped around your finger since the day you were born. You beautiful baby from the outside in, chase your dreams but always know the road that’ll lead you home again. Go on take on this old world, but to me you know you will always be my little girl.
