A virtual diary of sorts of what makes life better - and occasionally, what doesn't!

Geneviève Turns 1!!!
Geneviève Anise turned 1 yesterday.
How is that even possible?
I had a quiet day, remembering how only a year ago I woke up in the middle of the night with some definite signs of her arrival. I remembered the way she entered this world - fast and decided, carrying me with her. I remembered how peaceful her birth was and I can't help but be awed when I think of it, and thankful to the women who accompanied us on her journey earthside.
She was born in a hurry, and Richard was the one to place her in my arms. I remember his face, how proud he was. Gen was my pudgy baby - rolls and dimples and wrinkles everywhere. She still has those dimples when she grins. She's a beautiful girl, and her personality matches her birth.
We celebrated with the Grammies and Grampies, and Auntie Lydz and Uncle Shawn.
Her cake was 4 layers of chocolatey goodness. Most of hers landed on the deck, but she made good use of the icecream.
Gen, Maddie & Crystal, the bunny.
Her very own chair...when the other kids let her sit in it. She's holding her ground, though, and giving them whatfor.
