And here we are…Baby T you are one today. As I write this I notice the time is 3.29pm, you were born exactly one year ago. There is an endless ocean of things I could say to you, thoughtful things and sad things, things laced with regret and sorrow, but I won’t. Today is a celebration, a celebration of you and of us as a family. There will be time now, I think, to process the year that has passed. To move on from the cloud of PND that threatened to engulf our entire family. Today the happy memories outweigh the sad ones. I am filled to bursting with pride and wonder at the person you are, at your charm and happiness, your smile and your determination. I love you baby girl, now and forever.
