Happy Birthday, Peanut!
It's hard to believe it's been a whole 12 months since I finally got to see the fruits of my labor. In some ways it's been the longest year of my life, and in others it has just flown by faster than I could have imagined.
I've seen my priorities shift dramatically. My relationship with my husband has been strengthened beyond anything anticipated. The sweet giggles of my daughter have helped me to move past a grief that would previously have seemed insurmountable.
Never in my life has the future seemed so imminently exciting. Each new leap in development is a new source for celebration. Even at her worst, the time I spend with my daughter has become the emotional safety net I never knew I needed.
So Happy Birthday, my incredible Daphne. I can't wait to show you EVERYTHING.
