Have you seen this amazing video?
Once she passed that 1 year mark, I totally lost it. Because that's sorta how I remember Sisi's first year- a wave of little snippets, facial expressions, and memories tied together. I can't even really remember what it was like to hold tiny newborn Sisi, and that was just a year ago.
Joe could hear me crying in the office as I watched this, and he came in to watch too. In between sobs I sniffled out something like, "Sisi's gonna grow up! She's not going to be a baby for much longer. It's so sad!"
He gently replied, "But she'll be such a beautiful little girl."
And it reminded me of my role as a mother- not to raise a cute, chubby little baby, but to raise a daughter. One who will become a little girl, then a woman, and who might even have her own child someday. It's too trippy to even comprehend!
