Birthday looming.

We just put our girl to sleep as an eleven month old for the last time and when she wakes up tomorrow, she will be a big, bad ONE year old. A year ago, she came into the world on her own time (three weeks early) and she has been keeping us on our toes ever since. Before Winnie was born, I didn’t know what it would be like to be a mom. But I love it more than I could have imagined.

Being a parent is bittersweet. It is constant newness and constant learning, and once you finally feel like you are getting the swing of it, it changes again. It’s difficult to let go of some of those sweet baby milestones because with each month, they need you less and less, but with every new chapter, there has been something new to love. One thing is for sure, she changed our lives in the blink of an eye and I wouldn’t have it any other way, even through the hardest, most-sleep deprived times. It has been and is my greatest joy to be her mom.
