Bon Anniversaire

Happy Birthday, Baby. Happy Birthday

It's been a hell of a ride, this last year. I spent all day remembering the day you came Earthside, even flashing back to when your sister did the same. My little people. I can't wrap my mind around how meeting you has given me direction, purpose, and a sense of self I could never achieve alone.

Again and again, I am stunned and humbled at the depths of love and generosity bestowed upon us by friends, family, and strangers alike. What a life they have granted.

These days are fleeting, so we leave a record.

I've yet to grow tired of holding you while you sleep. I'm equally as proud of your growth and accomplishment as I am melancholy to say goodbye to the time as it passes.

I love you.
I love you.
Goodnight.
