The first year goes by fast. Everyone tells you not to blink and you shake your tired head and hope that your eyes can stay closed a few seconds longer so the person saying that doesn’t see you roll your eyes. Year one is a whirlwind and it is tough, but oh so sweet. I say this as I look at my 7 month old and rub my own tired eyes. There is so much to celebrate though; a new baby transitioning into a new toddler, and new parents turning into mom and dad. It deserves more than just celebrating that sweet little one, but celebrating the fact that you were together as a family. And it most certainly deserves cake. Congratulations “L” family and happy birthday Nora.
