One Year

on 03 January 2013

2012 Started for me with my Girl.  My beautiful, tiny, impish daughter.  She has filled everything this year, our home, our hearts, and our exasperation to overflowing.   She is lovely, she is funny, she is clever, and just like her brother, she's sensitive and sweet.  Though, unlike her brother, she's more curious and adventurous than eager to please.

By the end of the day I am exhausted.  Exhausted by chasing her around and keeping her out of stuff and cleaning up after her and protecting her from herself.  And yet.  By the end of everyday I find myself filled with curiosity about what the next day will bring.  And the next.  And the next.  And the next.

Happy Birthday, Little One.  And many, many more.
