today she is 1
And I’m teary. This isn’t going to go well if I can’t even write the title without getting choked up…
She’s 1! Today is Bug’s very first birthday!! To say that I am so proud of all her accomplishments this year would be an understatement. She has surprised Jose and I every day with every new little thing she has learned. It’s amazing how proud you can be by someone learning to roll over for the first time, or sit up, or clap their hands. Things that seems so small compared to what’s to come, but so huge at the same time. Even though this year has flown by, it has by far been the best year of my life.
And while I am so proud of her, I am even more proud of Jose and I. I have heard before that the first year of marriage is difficult, and if you can get through that then you can get through anything.
Have a baby. That will be the true test on any relationship. And it makes me so proud to say that we made it through all the ups and downs together.
Not that to say that it has always been easy. Especially at first, it was tricky to find the right balance between being a wife and a mother. That is a lot of well deserved time that needs to be allotted for both. I’m sure it was hard for Jose too, trying to find his role in it all, and trying to bond with a new baby. He did a great job at figuring it all out. And lucky for me I have an amazing husband who gave me time and space to figure out the ropes of becoming a mother, and supported and helped me in any way that he could. And still does.
And now here we are a year later celebrating this girl on her 1st birthday!
Bug, we love you more then I could ever put into words! You have accomplished so much in your first year, we can’t wait to see what’s next.
