Exactly one year ago today, this was what my little girl was doing. I loved when she used to make that quirky smile for the camera. Her new baby brother was almost exactly a month old and she loved using the things he used---bumbo, baby swing, bouncer, etc. There is a special place in my heart for this firstborn child of mine. She is so much like me, it's scary. Her sassy attitude, humor, and her sensitivity - I understand it all because it is me.
I hope she continues to love others as much as she does right now.
I hope she learns from my experiences and doesn't make the same mistakes I did.
I hope she loves and apprciates her mom as a teenager, like I wish I had done.
And that's how Suze sees it.
