I’m writing this a little late, but wanted to take a minute and peek at her at around this time every year since birth. Only the last photo is from October, the rest are from the first week of November, just after a ‘birth’ day. Instead of dirty diapers and sleeplessness, we’re dealing with reading, expressing our emotions, and finding our own unique way in the world. Instead of ‘what is she saying?’ with every coo, it’s ‘can you please STOP humming for a minute so I can think?!?’ I couldn’t see this, 4 years ago, not even close, but I wouldn’t trade a single day of it for a million bucks. Three was a really hard year, but I’m looking forward to all that 4 holds!
