Happy Birthday Aydin

It hardly seems possible that my baby girl is already a year old. One year ago today I was holding my new baby girl in my arms and thinking that she was the most perfect baby that I had ever seen, hardly believing my luck that she could be mine, and so excited to get her home and be her mamma. And look at her now. Oh how much she has changed. Walking, talking, making jokes, and learning new things. Even while I miss that precious, chubby, baby who relied on me for everything and knew nothing but to trust that we would take care of her, I delight in every new step that she takes, and look forward to each new phase of her life. I can't even describe how joyous it has been to watch her develop into the little girl that she is today. Her personality continues to blossom and, and as it does she continues to make us smile at every little thing and laugh at all of her little jokes and the funny things she does. Oh, we are so blessed! Happy 1st Birthday Aydin!! We love you so much!

Mama's Little Helper

Probably the biggest hurdle of motherhood yet is trying to figure out how I can get everything on my "to-do" list done. I have finally figured out that if I just let her help me, it might take longer (and I might have to re-do some stuff) but I can usually get it done. Chores are a little more fun now.
