My younger daughter turned one on June 1st! I can't believe how quickly this year has passed; and how much she has changed in just 12 short months. She's pulling herself to stand and using several signs to communicate. She loves to play with her big brother and she has a delightful personality.
It's so different having a typical child after having a preemie. She's just so healthy....and low maintenance.
What an amazing year it's been for all of us! Jozey has grown into this fiercely independent almost toddler who adores her big brother. Max has really embraced his role as the older brother, and takes it upon himself to inform me when his baby sister needs a diaper change and that she should have crackers and juice too.
I have been quietly observing this blossoming relationship between these two, and have loved every minute of it. It is pure joy to watch them interact; and the way my daughter's face lights up when she sees her brother.....oh my! It warms my heart.
Thank you, my beautiful children, for choosing me to be your mommy! I love you all!
