365 Days later

One year has passed and I am still in awe that I am a mom. Or maybe it's disbelief, I don't know, but she grows on my heart more each day. It continues to amaze me how much a person develops in the first year of life. It feels just like yesterday that we were bringing her home and just excited for what was to come. It's here now and everyday there is something new that she has learned or trying. She has morphed from a little lump to a walking, chatty cathy.

The birthday party was a lot of fun. She got to see her friends and dig into some cake without remorse. We had visitors from Kansas and Townsend, MT. She was so spoiled with toys, wonderful books, and lots of love. What more could a little girl ask for I am not sure.

Everything didn't quite go according to my perfect little listed plan, but that is ok. I may have overestimated my time, energy, and talent. Lesson learned! Good thing my mom and sister were here to help. I ate way to many sweets in the last four days but I think you have to do that every once in while in order to enjoy life and remember what is important. Five years ago, I couldn't have pictured these moments if I had tried, and now I can't imagine not having them. Our little family is probably complete, which is good, because I don't think you can improve on perfection.
