A year ago yesterday, we started a journey. In the beginning we were strangers. Neither of us knew what we were doing. Some days were amazing, others were hard. But we learned and we grew.
Then gradually, all of a sudden, you became a person and I became your mom.
Happy First Birthday Lillian. You are strong, funny, kind, beautiful and perfect. You delight and challenge me every day. Thank you for the best, hardest and most memorable year.
And now, for the CAKE!
|That looks pretty!|
|Can I touch it?|
|“I think its edible…”|
|“Maybe a bigger bite…”|
|“This stuff is amazing!”|
|“Om…nom…nom… Oh, did you guys want some??”|
