A world of difference

This time last year I was about 25 pizza rolls deep and less than two hours away from going into labor.
My, how things have changed.
Tomorrow at 11:21 am, this girl will be ONE year old.
(read her entire birth story here)
And I’m second guessing my decision to go to work on her actual birthday.
I know she doesn’t know any different,
and she will have a grand party on Sunday,
but now I am wishing I had taken the day off to celebrate
And just soak it all in.
Sometimes it feels like a blur.
And like all parents,
I want to freeze time
hold on to those cheeks
that crooked grin
those two baby teeth
(and one more poking through)
wispy blond hair
and of course
that belly
 as long as I can.
