Happy 1st Birthday!

It's Abby's 1st birthday today! Boy, the year has flown by. Clique, I know, but oh so true.

It seems like yesterday that I was reading John's note on the table, ordering me to go to the doctor to check on the contractions which I had previously insisted where "nothing".

It seems like yesterday that I was crying on the phone to my mom, telling her that I was driving myself to the hospital because the contractions were actually labor.

It seems like yesterday that the nurses and doctors and neonatologists and perinatologists were gearing up for our daughter's very premature birth.

And yes, I can remember it like yesterday, hearing her scream the moment she was born. Wow. That was the most beautiful noise ever.

We celebrated her birthday a few days ago with a little party with family and friends. She completely got into the whole "cake thing", digging in with both hands.

Chatting it up with one of her peeps.

We tried to get a group shot, but...the kids had other ideas. I guess since it's her party she can cry if she wants to! After getting out of the pool she was much better...I think there was just too much going on for her!

Happy 1st birthday my sweet girl!

Happy Birthday Abby! What a big girl she is now. Love those cake pictures! And I remember a year ago having a strange feeling that you were in the hospital, and shaking my head telling myself it was too early.
