Big girl

 1 year

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.

So happy 

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.

This afternoon, we have had family visiting, and we have had such a nice day. Happy children, good company, birthday cake, wonderful presents, and beautiful weather! What more can you ask for?

So Frida –

    Looks like she is getting another tooth for her birthday! She looks so happy in this photo. Glad you all had a wonderful day. Enjoy the snuggles. My littlest one turns two in a month.

    Happy Birthday Frida!!! Seems like you and my Little Monkey have had something in common. He was born with a cleft palate too! He had his surgery at 9 months. Glad to hear your doing so well!

    Happy Birthday to Frida! Today we were planning Tabitha’s birthday and I thought, “Hey, I think Frida must be turning one now too!” and I came to the site and sure enough, she did! There’s nothing quite so special as that 1st birthday, is there? Congrats to you all.
