The Earth has traveled halfway around the sun since sweet little e arrived Earthside. She's a joy, and she's a challenge. She is outspoken and opinionated already, driven and high-achieving to a fault. She's friendly and engaging. She adores her brother, and he adores her.
She's not an "easy" baby, but she's such a blessing. Parenting her brings out the best in both me and DH. She's exactly what we can handle - our relationship could not have survived this kind of strain four years ago.
We spent her half birthday at the park with friends, and had such a great time. We are so lucky to have such a wonderful group of friends and family surrounding our children.
