It's the end of a very long day... there's a lot going on in our neck of the woods these days. But today was extra special as our baby turned one. It went so incredibly fast with Grace. Ten times faster with Brooklyn.
As I sit in the (almost) quiet (Diesel doesn't know the word quiet..) night, I can't help but think back to a year ago at this time as we were being moved out of the labor and delivery ward to the recovery wing. It was the beginning of a very long night of parenting alone. Little sleep and lots of tears. I struggled, a lot. Back then I was about to feel run down and scared that having two was not going to be an easy transition.
But now? Now I marvel everyday at my sweet second baby. The ornery one in our family. The one who knows that one look that will let her get away with just about everything. She cuddles at just the right time. And already shows such an amazing personality. God without a doubt knew what he was doing.
I'm not sure where the last year went.
Today you are one...
Happy birthday my baby girl!
