Well, I've been working on Ava's birthday video the past couple of days and I'm just so excited but sad at the same time for her 1st birthday. After I had Juliana, I always sort of knew in the back of my mind that I would have another baby someday (even though outwardly I denied it) so as each milestone passed I was a little sad, but I also knew that it would not be the last time I would witness a baby's first smile, tooth or step. Now that we have Ava though, and our family is most definitely complete, (yes, I'm serious this time!) I watch each new thing she learns with a little tear in my eye because I know this will be my last time for such an event. So let me just get this out of my system when I say: MY BABIES ARE GROWING UP!!! I have officially turned into a weepy mom who will sob at each major milestone in my children's life from here on out.

On another note, one thing I have learned in the past week that no matter what I do or say, there will always be people out there who will not like me, my beliefs, or my parenting style- be it because of my politics or simply because I forgot to put a hat on my baby on my last trip to the grocery store. It can't be helped. All I can do is to live my life happily and to raise my kids in the best way that I know how. Everything will be fine. Trust me.
