one beautiful year

IMG_1633One beautiful year ago, my little girl was born.  I still think of her as a baby, but look how she’s grown.  Crawling, standing but not walking; saying mama and dad but not really talking.  Laughing when she’s not crying; happy most of the time she’s awake.  Good at sleeping.  Very much a part of our family with her own expressions and her own voice.  Today we celebrated with family and it was fun to have everyone here for a feast.  I remember the relief I felt after when my other two turned one and I started to get a little more sleep and feel a little less exhausted and more of myself again.  The peonies and poppies in our garden are blooming, just as they were this time a year ago when our little girl was born.

I started blogging after the birth of my first child. Since I stopped working, I realise I am defined far more by my relationships than by what I do. So, I am: wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend.
