Elsie is ONE!12:15:00
Well the day had to arrive eventually, but it doesn't make it any easier to believe it is here. Elsie is one whole year old today. One year ago today, I left Gracie and Zach with my Auntie and headed off bright and early to wait for my C-Section. I was scared and nervous and excited. It seems like a blur now I just remember the sick feeling all through the op (a side effect of the meds) and I remember crying as soon as I heard her little cry and the overwhelming feeling of being able to hold her immediately before anyone else, something I didn't get to do with her brother and sister. Her first few weeks were so hard and she really did give us so many scares. It was certainly emotional.
Since then she has grown so much and I wouldn't change a thing about her. Her cheeky personality and the way she loves to wind everyone up for a giggle, the silly faces she pulls when she is enjoying her food, the big smile and waves we get every single morning when we walk into her bedroom and the amazing bond she has with her big sister and brother. She has changed our lives so dramatically and our family finally feels complete.
Happy 1st Birthday Elsie! We all love you so much!
