a phoebe turns 1
and just like that...our baby bee is a year old. at 1, phoebe sue is the wildest and funniest and orneriest friend in town. she twerks to pop music and snarls and growls when she's pleased. she claps for no good reason at all...has hair that will never ever stay down ever...and eats up every last bit of all the things to do and learn in this world. she's strong-willed and curious. funny and reserved. she is absolutely more beautiful and interesting a person then i could ever have dreamed her up to be. her life is a gift....and today we celebrate it over and over.
this past year has been so full and amazing and exhausting and significant. from reclaiming the birth experience to a full year of nursing every two hours...there have been moments of feeling like a super woman...and many more moments of feeling the weakest i've ever felt. but there is beauty and a whole lot of wisdom where those two meet...and i'm forever thankful for the chance to get to experience it all.
so today we clap and snarl and twerk for bee! happy happy birthday, our girl! you are loved 10x4x5x20!
