My baby is one year old today. Seriously. I can't believe it. One year ago, she emerged from my body, became part of this world and my family. I can't imagine my life without her. She filled a dark, deep void in my heart brought on by years of frustrating and untreatable infertility. I thought life wouldn't be that bad without kids - we'd have money, travel, a busy social life. But I know what I was missing and I am so happy and grateful every day that I am her parent.

I brought in mini cupcakes and ice cream cups for school today. We will have a little party for her on August 23rd when Daddy gets home from Boston. It will be at a local park with a splash pool and playground and be fairly low key.
