So after a long day of cleaning and decorating I need to reflect. . . reflect on all of the joy I have had this past year.
One year ago tonight I was sitting in a hospital room with my daughter and son-in-law awaiting the arrival of my first grandchild. One year ago tonight I was excited and a little worried. One year ago tonight I never went to bed and wasn't tired.
The next evening I held that perfect baby girl in my arms and I loved her instantly! Even I was surprised at the amount of emotion I felt that evening.
There was the . . .
First week at home
Reflux disorder and throw-up
First giggles and coos
and so much more!
Tomorrow My Monkey will be sitting in this chair eating (or at least destroying) her very first birthday cake. Tomorrow there will be about 50 people in my house all celebrating the life and joy of Vittoria Lee!
