Five years

Five years ago today, I finally completed my 54 hours of labor and gave birth to my daughter Amelia. She was small but fiercely determined, and life has never been the same. The first years were – I’m not going to lie – frequently miserable. We’re better at being kind to each other these days, though of course we still get sideways from time to time. Five-year-olds have tantrums too, blerg.

Watching Amelia grow up is a joy. I’m so grateful that she chose our family as the place to start her life’s journey.

Happy birthday, Amelia!
