Today is Harlow's 1st birthday. I can't believe it. It seems like just yesterday I was yelling at that poor medical student to rub my ass in the delivery room.
I remember Mazzy's first year stretching like an eternity. When we finally made it to her birthday, it felt like a major accomplishment that Mike and I were both still fully functioning human beings.
Well, maybe "fully" functioning is a stretch.
Harlow's year passed in a flash. Like something we missed while we were busy shuttling Mazzy back and forth to gymnastics class.
On Saturday, we are throwing Harlow's birthday party for a small gathering of family and friends. And next week, I'm hoping to dedicate a lot more time to reminiscing about this past year. Will there be a video compilation as labor intensive as Mazzy's first year video?
It's on my list, but somehow I doubt it.
Harlow— please know lack of video montage doesn't mean we love you any less than your sister. One day you will have a second child and you will understand.
Today, I'm going to look back at my favorite photos of Harlow. In chronological order from birth to just this morning. If you scroll really fast, you'll get a sense of exactly how quickly this year passed.
Happy Birthday, my sweet fierce little Harlow!
I hope this counts as an album.
