Harper's first birthday is tomorrow. I can't believe it has already been a year since she was born! Last year at this time, I was in the hospital trying to watch Grey's Anatomy while the nurse was putting the IV in my arm and getting geared up for the cervadil.
What I wasn't expecting was the strange feeling I have at the one year mark. While I am happy that she is growing and learning more every day, I also feel sad that I am losing my baby. It is like every day there is a new step toward her independence--no more bottles, no more formula, self-feeding, etc. I just can't imagine never being able to witness again the amazing things that happen in the first year of a baby's life. God knows the desires of my heart, and I pray that He will let us have another child in His time.
By the way, this blog has been WAY too serious for my liking. I promise I will try to lighten it up soon!
