My daughter's birthday celebration today was wonderful, and despite the sad fact that my oven refused to work, I was able to use my church's oven yesterday to bake my daughter's pink princess cake. Thank you, Seneca UMC!
My husband and I were up until 4 a.m. getting everything ready--those last-minute preparations always seem to take longer than one would think--so I'm going to go to bed early tonight. I hope to post some cake pictures soon--and I'll try very hard to catch up on your blogs tomorrow. I missed reading them!
Here are today's 100 words on my baby's birthday and the passage of time:
Today is my daughter's second birthday. It sounds trite, but I really can't believe how quickly the years have gone. I watched some video of her yesterday, and seeing how much she has changed from just a few months ago boggles my mind: the length of her hair, her speech, her coordination--all of these things are so different now. She's grown so much, which is both wonderful and so bittersweet, and I want to laugh with joy and sob at the same time for these years that have passed so quickly, for the tomorrows that will do the same.
