This past weekend, I had the pleasure of attending the 2nd birthday party of a special friends miracle baby girls. The party was, as any party with a toddler is, quite simply hectic. Between keeping Ava off the stairs and away from the horse and away from the barbed wire fence, I spent most of the afternoon chasing her all over the place and had very little time to relax and enjoy the party with many mutual friends who were in attendance.
It was only when I got home and Ava had gone to bed that I had a chance to sit down and reflect on where the past year has gone. I attended the same girls birthday party last year, this is one of the photo’s taken at that party:
That was a pretty significant weekend for us. This time a year ago, Ava started cutting her first two teeth. The day of the party last year, she had looked a bit flushed in the face and wasn’t her usual happy self. The following day we started with real teething symptoms in earnest.
As I looked back and remembered that weekend. The party, the pooping incident in the fancy restaurant, the teething. I can’t help wondering……
When did my baby morph into a little girl?
