|Hayley Jane the day after she was born
Today I am filled with excitement and sadness about my youngest turning One tomorrow. I am thrilled we ALL survived the first year without too many bruises. I am sad that I won’t ever have my own teeny tiny newborn again. I will miss the countless hours of rocking, soothing, holding and kissing. I won’t miss the worry about not gaining weight, not holding down food, battling reflux, hoping that the enlarged pulmonary valve truly is a common thing and that my baby will out grow it. At a day before turning one my baby girl doesn’t need to see a cardiologist again, is doing so much better with her reflux and is waddling all over the place. On the day Hayley Jane was born I knew my little family was truly complete. I knew the deep in my heart love I felt for her brother Derek would be just what I would feel for her. I am madly deeply crazily in love with my kids and on the day before my little girl turns One I am feeling very emotional!
