On this day last year, Frida was born. She was 1 month early, and just so tiny and fragile. She was born with a cleft palate which meant that I was unable to breastfeed her, and basically, she gave us a few surprises when she made her entrance.
Today we celebrated her one year birthday, and I’m telling you, many words come to mind when you see her, but tiny and fragile are not among them.
She’s the happiest little girl, with a contagious smile and a wonderful curiosity, and honestly, she doesn’t give us much trouble. She has been sleeping through the night since she was about 2-3 months old, she eats well, and she rarely complains about anything. When she’s a year and a half, she will have to undergo surgery to have her cleft palate closed, but until then we’re glad that it’s not bothering her.
So Frida –
HAPPY 1st BIRTHDAY!!!
