One

Today is the biggest of big days, my sweet Sela turns one year old. I can't believe we made it. There have been (quite) a few nights where I seriously doubted I would make it out alive, let alone sane. One year ago...






My heart feels like it's going to burst with excitement for the future, and break with longing for the past. How do the hearts of mothers survive?
In this short year, she has grown into a strong, confident, and beautiful child. She is my little drama queen, definitely the boss, and full of life and love.
Happiest Birthday wishes to you, sweet baby.

Happy Birthday Sela! Those pictures are beautiful! Did you use any methods? My sister in law did hypnobabies, so I was wondering if you did anything like that. Her name is Marcie. Check her out on my blog roll for awesome pictures of her home birth.

These pictures are amazing. I love the ones of you while you were pregnant, they are so beautiful. Did you have a home birth? I would love to hear about that sometime! How fun that Sela is 1 year old now...Time seems to pass by way too quickly, doesn't it?
