As most of you know, Hailey's first birthday is rapidly approaching. It will be here in a few days over a month. Many days, I ask myself, where has the time gone? Other times, I think...wow, it has only been a year! I know I am the same person I was last February when my precious little girl was born. But I'm not the same person Talking in circles, I know.
To say that Hailey's birth was emotional is quite an understatement. I thought a year would make some of the emotions surrounding her diagnosis disappear. Nope, I still remember them. I don't carry them with me the way I wore them those first few months. They have been pushed aside and filed away. They are a little duller but some of them resurface from time to time. Some days they can even put me into a full cry session. Some of the emotions have evolved or changed.
I might bore people with the next few blog posts as I revisit those feelings as I work on closing the chapter of Hailey's first year look forward to starting a new one!
I would start with the first one tonight but my eyes can't stay open long enough to type!!
In looking at this face...it is hard to believe some of those feelings every existed! Please ignore the prunes and Mexican food that adorns her face in these!
