A year has gone by and I can hardly believe it. I feel like yesterday I was nervously awaiting for my c-section. Now she is walking, eating table food and talking. She will not let you snuggle her unless she has just woken up or sleepy. Any other time look out because she is on the go and she doesn't like being held back. I know all mom's feel their child is the smartest most amazing child but I am just so amazed by her. Even when she throws a tantrum its amazing that such small person knows how throw herself on the ground and roll around screaming. Unfortunately mommy has been trained by numerous other children and just walks away after moving everything out of the way that she might hurt herself on. I know most parents don't make a huge deal on birthdays let alone 1st ones but I feel like I probably did. I made sure she had balloons when she woke up and her daddy made her birthday pancakes and she got her cake smash photos done today too. I even made her a tutu to match her birthday shirt. I think I will always try and make birthdays a little more special. Today I hope was a little special for her...even if she doesn't remember.

April is a big month in our family. In a week I will be 25 weeks. So I only have 14 (since I have to have another c-section) weeks left until we meet this little one. Marleigh is growing like a weed. She is a part time walker but everyday she is taking more and more steps. She is eating everything! Whatever we put in front of her she gobbles it up and so far has only disliked my meatloaf....her father also doesn't like it so I guess its off the menu. We have tried eggs she likes them also. Once she gets over this cold we are going to start the transition to homo milk (my wallet can't wait) and maybe even peanut butter (I am very nervous about that). She has 7 teeth and is working on another one (oh teething I hate you). She loves to climb, she is a better climber then she is a walker currently. She is smart. I know all moms say that but when I ask her where Jackson is she always looks up to his picture and smiles (which always makes me smile). She is a big daddy's girl which is good because when this new baby comes and needs me for the first couple of months she might not even notice. I can't believe its almost been a year since she was born. I realize how much we missed out with Jackson and how much we savour every little moment she gives us. This year has had its bumps and I don't think I will ever not worry that something might happen but now I don't have a breakdown everytime she has a sniffle or a cough. Probably once this baby is born I will be so busy I won't have time to worry anymore. Once this month is done the countdown is on for baby number 3.
