Happy Birthday Rowan!

Well, my sweet little lady is now one year old!  I can hardly believe the year has flown by so fast.  I really do feel like I just blinked and she is a toddler.  I have spent the past week or so really getting ready emotionally for this birthday.  I have been remembering back one year to when I was pregnant and what that felt like.  How I was waiting to see who this little person would be, and how I was so anxious to meet her.  (I was sure she was going to be a “her”.  My pregnant dreams have never lied to me on gender.)  How I was so sure she would be born between 5 and 6 am (she was) and how I should have known it would be a Wednesday.  How I was positive Rowan would be born in a snowstorm, but I didn’t tell Chris that because he was terrified she would be born in a snowstorm.  LOL

This morning when Rowan woke up, she gave me a super-long snuggle hug as I told her a bit about her birth.  We walked into her room and remembered meeting each other for the first time in that room and snuggling together as we got to know each other and the rest of the family.  It was amazing to me how calm she was this morning as I talked about this.  It really seemed as if she was listening and reliving that moment with me.  Happy birthday my lovely little Baby Flower!  It has been an honor to know you this past year, and I look forward to all the rest of the years of your life.  I love you, Rowan!
