Today last year I was in the hospital having given birth to my rainbow Rosabella. It has been a year of learning how to parent a living, breathing, sometimes screaming baby. It has been a pleasure to watch her grow and learn and be fascinated by what we take for granted and see as mudane (the faucet in the bath tub IS amazing). It has also been bittersweet, seeing all the things I missed with Grace in living color.
Despite everything I love being a Mom, I love Rosabella, I love Grace, I love the sleepless nights, the sagging boobs, the gray hairs that appeared overnight, I love it all. Happy Birthday my great big 1 year old girl!
