Congratulations – We Survived

Today is August 8, 2016.

Exactly one year ago, our little bub graced this Earth with the first glimpse of his giant cheeks and blue-black eyes.

Someone once told me that the reason that you throw such a big party for your child’s first birthday is because you are not only celebrating a milestone for your baby, but you are also celebrating your first anniversary of being parents.

Never has that felt more true.

This first birthday is bittersweet. It commemorates a long year of soaring highs and lows deeper and darker than I ever could have imagined. It was a long year. It was full of expectations, lessons learned the hard way, a great deal of self-reflection and survival.

Happy Birthday to my little guy. But happy, happy, happy parent anniversary to my husband and I.
