I can't believe how fast a year can fly by. I year ago today I had the craziest labor ever and I thank God everyday for our little gem, Lori Darling. She truly is a darling. She's sweet, gentle, calm, kind and as tender as can be.
Last night I stayed up late baking for the party, gave my sweet girl her birthday kiss at midnight (one of many now haha) and went to sleep. This morning Vayda and I sang happy birthday a few times (ok a lot of times), we enjoyed birthday pancakes then continued our regular routine rushing to get out of the door to Nana's then to work. On my way to work I thought back on her birth and how thankful I am that she was ok through it all. How beautiful it was to hold her for the first time, even if it was on cold cement and on top of my clothes. How awesome this first year has been with her. Getting to know her personality and watching her learn to do so many things. I may or may not have shed a few tears.
I'm so thankful for our family. Vayda has been an amazing big sister to little Lucky. And Lucky has done her job as a little sister so far, following Vay everywhere, pulling her hair, scratching at times (=\)and giving lots of besos.
Thank you for giving me these two awesome kiddos! Thanks for being so amazingly calm for me when you just about delivered Lori. You're an amazing papa and like I said in my text to you this morning, I wouldn't have it any other way. I love you!
HAPPY BRITHDAY!! We love you soooo much baby girl! Your smile is contagious and your eyes radiate love. Thank you for being such an amazing little. You're an awesome one year old!! besos!
You're such an awesome big sister! I'm not going to lie, we were worried a little at first. Sometimes you're a little rough lol and you were so used to being an only child. But you sure showed us! You are so sweet and gentle with Lori. I love watching you with her. I love you!
Dear Firemen (E51/A),
Thank you for making it just at the right second to deliver our precious babe! The moment I heard your sirens I knew it would be ok. You all were so awesome and are all forever in our hearts. Also, thank you for taking pictures on your phone when all was said and done. I appreciate you not thinking I was crazy (or at least not showing it haha). Those pictures are priceless. Thank you again!
