Well, I did it, dear Reader. I made it through the whole day without breaking into tears. Another year has passed so quickly, and my little one is growing up. I sometimes find myself looking wistfully at little babies, wishing I could go back and hold her like that again, just for a day…and at the same time, I find myself looking forward to what adventures the future will bring. She only gets more fun as she grows, and I love experiencing the world anew through her eyes, sharing in her boundless enthusiasm. I think I’m just going to enjoy living in the present, savoring every moment.
Happy birthday, baby girl. Every time I look at your sweet face, I feel like I won the lottery!
