Some days are good days. And some days you just have to live through. This is my journey through life as a birthmother.

Happy Birthday Brit!
Today is your first birthday and you are getting so big! Everything you do is amazing, and you are exceptional for sure. You were an early walker, you already babble words, you wave and dance, you can sit and look at books and you already really play with toys. None of the boys could do so many things at this age. But since you're a girl, why wouldn't we expect so much?
I am sad that I haven't been there for any of those special firsts. I missed every single thing. The beauty is that you don't even realize it. You have two parents who are there with you who caught it all.
I wish that I got to see you more and spend time enjoying you as you go through all of these baby stages so quickly.
However, I know that these baby moments will be gone in the blink of an eye. Before long it will be bicycles, tea parties and dance class.
I can't wait to hear about those too. And maybe, I will even get to see some in person.
I am so very glad that we got to see you just the other day. I was hoping we would be able to share your birthday with you. I am so glad we got to have that time with you.
I am thinking about you today and loving you from a distance. Just like I do every day.
