I can hardly believe this little girl
Used to be so tiny.
Five weeks early,
only two days in the NICU.
This girl has been a fighter from the beginning.
We call it “spice,” but others might call it attitude.
She was supposed to be our docile child. Ha ha.
She is strong
She loves to laugh,
and has dimples.
(She screams at us when she’s angry.)
She lives, really lives, and she’s only one year old today. How does she already know how important that is?
She is Abigail,
She is my darling.
Today she turned ONE YEAR OLD.
She came into our lives early, easily, quietly, one year ago.
She filled a hole we didn’t even know existed.
And I can’t imagine life without her.
Happy birthday, my Abby-girl. I LOVE YOU!
