Happy Birthday, Happy Anniversary

Today is my best girl's birthday. Last year, there was little fuss. This year, she really knows what is going on. "I want a bunny. You buy it for me." Yeah, right...

It is also the anniversary of when I became a mommy. During labor, our midwife kept saying, "You're becoming a mother." At the time, I thought something like, "What a redundant thing to say, I know that!" But she was right, labor prepares us for the true pain of motherhood: worrying over our children, feeling their pain as our own.

So, today I'm celebrating my daughter's birthday, but also my birth as a mother and how thankful I am for that.

The birthday:

1st Birthday:


And many, many more.
