One Singular Sensation

One year ago today, I was experiencing unfortunate bladder control issues. At the time, it sucked. In retrospect, totally worth it.

Because, one year ago tonight, after two and a half hours of drug-free labor, the most beautiful, happiest, snuggliest little girl, popped her way in to the world.

I know some people stop after having one child because they couldn't imagine loving another child as much as they love their first. We couldn't imagine not having AK. She has brought such fullness to our lives. To see her interact with LP (both in positive and negative ways) makes my life more complete.

When we are out and about, AK smiles at everyone she sees, bringing brightness to the lives of complete strangers. To actually know her and have her in my life is a blessing.

I can't believe it's been a year (which means I've been reading you for much longer)! Happy Birthday to that beautiful girl.

It really is amazing how you can love two children so much and so completely differently.

And I absolutely agree AK has an amazing ability to make someone smile!

Happy Birthday AK! (Sorry I missed it the other day). I totally agree, I was petrified that I would not be able to give LD the same love as RJ, but that totally was not true!

AK is absolutely adorable and always makes me smile!
