A little over a week ago, our daughter turned one. (Or “12 months old”, however you say it. I figure if you make it to a year you can start using the year numbers.)  The weeks preceding were a whirlwind, between moving to a new home, getting settled and started in a routine, upcoming holidays and of course, the 12 month shots.


All in all, though, it was quite a celebration.  We had the family together, and since our little turkey was born the day before Thanksgiving, we were able to have a birthday party AND a turkey dinner at the same time.  It makes me freeze in my tracks sometimes to think how far this little one has come.  A year ago we were just hoping she could breathe on her own – now she’s getting close to walking. 


There were so many people who told us, “She’ll be just fine…a year from now, she’ll be just fine.”  At the time, I couldn’t believe it. 


But it can happen.  We are truly blessed!
