Groundhogs day revisited.

Lights dim.
Warm and cozy in my home.
Babies sleeping safe and sweetly.
Tears of joy, not worry.
One year old today,
walking
"talking"
breathing
eating
LIVING.








It has been quite a year for this little lady and our family. It is 2:30 in the morning, and even while writing this, Miriam wakes up screaming (as she usually does) and I go make her a bottle to put her back to sleep. I couldn't be happier. Today my baby girl turns one. Even though she still struggles every now and then, she is here! I am so grateful to be her mother and watch her grow into the sassy little diva that she is. I am especially grateful to have her this time of year when I reflect on all that I am blessed with. I am grateful to my Savior for walking this path with us. My heart goes out to all of the many families who have lost, or are fighting for their babies lives. We are so lucky to have you Miriam! We love you!
