She is funny.
She is fun to be around.
She is very loved by her cousins (brothers).
We are having a pretty low key celebration tonight since they all have school and practices tonight. Her big sister has asked us to facetime her when we open presents since this will be the first birthday in which E won't be there.
It's her 6th birthday without her parents. I've been thinking of Jeanne throughout the day. I had a good cry about an hour ago and it felt good. I remember sitting in the hospital with her while she persevered through labor and I sat there with my belly swollen with A. I remember how scared she was when the doctor said she had to have a c-section and I hugged her telling her everything was going to be okay. It is still mind boggling to me that I'm raising that cute little baby now and regularly have to reassure her that everything IS going to be okay despite car accidents, ADHD and anxiety disorder.
It's strange that it's starting to feel like I can't imagine our life without her, while at the same time being disbelief that I am mothering her now. Her mommy loved her so much. I hope I'm doing right by both of them.
