So many posts...

On this, the day before the first anniversary of my baby's birth, I have a lot of blog posts I want to write, but no time to do it!  I want to write up my normal developmental update, a letter *to* her, a post about my year of nursing, and a post about where *I* am a year later.

I will say here, though, that I was just looking at my phone and saw a picture in there from one year ago today.  One blessing of having a scheduled C-section, assuming everything goes according to plan, is that on July 28, 2009 I knew I would be having my baby the next day.  I knew it was my last day of work (yes, I worked up through the day before I gave birth).  I knew it was my last day of having this baby inside my belly, going with me everywhere, quiet, kicking.  I knew it was my last day of having a baby bump.  So I took a picture.  It's from my vantage point--what I saw every day.  It's my bo.obs and then the bump.  No feet, of course (I haven't seen them on a regular basis since puberty).  Just boo.bs and bump.  And I have to admit, I miss it (the bump, I mean...the boo.bs are the same as they were--pre-pregnancy, pregnant, and nursing).  But I'm so very glad I had the presence of mind to take that picture to remember where I was one year ago today.

*I* can't believe she's a year old, so I know you must be in complete and utter disbelief!

I have a picture from the day before Will was born, too, and I still love it. The last day before I met him. I can't even remember what it was like before either of them were here. I'm sure you feel the same way. :)

Have a wonderful night. I remember how excited *I* was a year ago today. The feelings R. and I shared the night before your scheduled C-Section.

It's been a ride! And, you're amazing.

Aw I can't believe it's been a year!
