My Baby Girl Turns One Today

My little girl was born exactly one year ago today. And although I did not feel up for writing out N’s birth story, I did put together pictures of her from April 2009 through April 2010. And I can’t believe how fast it went (except for month six. Also known as the slowest four weeks of my life. Why? I have no idea. But month seven just REFUSED to arrive.)

My baby is sweet and giggly. She high-fives, waves goodbye, crawls, cruises, and says Mama and uh-oh like it’s her job. (Let’s not get into what that says about my parenting skills.) She also says Dada and cat but only when she feels like it. She’s so smart and ready for the world. I just hope that the world is ready for her!

Alex Iwashyna went from a B.A. in philosophy to an M.D. to a SAHM, poet and writer by 30. She spends most of her writing time on LateEnough.com, a humor blog (except when it's serious) about her husband fighting zombies, awkward attempts at friendship, and dancing like everyone is watching. She also has a soft spot for culture, politics, and rude Southern people who offend her Yankee sensibilities. She parents 2 elementary-aged children, 1 foster baby, 3 cats, and 1 puppy, who are all Southern but not rude. Yet.

  4. Hooray for the big ONE! I remember feeling like I could conquer the world when Riley turned one. You'll have to tell me if it's the same feeling with the second.

  5. She is gorgeous, and I am not just saying that. Enjoy every moment, you know how time flies. I still cannot believe Sadie is one year old. Also the year flew by and it will most likely get faster as they grow older.
    Have a wonderful day,
    Ingrid
