Happy First Birthday Maya!
The past year ushered in more change than I've ever experienced in my life. I'd heard that my heart would expand after you were born, but that's not true. You became a walking, talking, pooping, version of my heart.
Your arrival would herald the beginning of my new role as Mother. Quickly I learned how to deal with poop, pee, gallons of spit up and worst of all your tears. I'd walk the ends of the Earth to keep you healthy and happy.
I learned I could walk over pointy baby toys in the middle of the night and not fall down. And that I would fall down in my rush to make sure you were okay.
I called the Pediatrician frantic over your first sniffle, going in for a visit because you had a hoarse cry for 20 minutes (probably from all the crying).
I discovered I can listen to the Wiggles all day and all night, and it doesn't get old. (Except when We're on our way to Wiggle Bay plays in my head for the umpteenth time, then I sing it to your Dad so it can get stuck in his brain.)
I found my favorite sound in the world-baby giggles. Add in Daddy giggles and it's the best sound this side of the Universe.
I've learned to sit back and enjoy the little accomplishments, and watch you take in joy in the insignificant. You have reveled how it's possible to delight in the ordinary, a lesson I hope to never unlearn. Happy Birthday, Sweetheart. Thank you for changing my life for the better. I love you.
