Happy Birthday, Peanut!

You're one year and one week old today. All those people that said life would never be the same? They were so correct! I can't imagine my life without you and your sweet face. You make me crack up so many times a day... and every day, I fall a little more in love with you.

I loved giving birth to you. It was the most intense experience of my life, and I felt completely fulfilled in my femininity and in my humanity. It was natural, and I felt every bit of you pass through me, your gateway into the world. It's been my joy to introduce you to so much of the world already, and the upcoming years will be so much fun as I get to see you grow and learn so much.

Thank you for being you...
