My little baby turns 1 on Sunday!

It's so hard to believe. A year ago, I didn't know her yet, and then suddenly she was here. It was the most amazing birthing experience ever -- I would never say the experience with my son was bad, but it just wasn't the same. I wasn't relaxed like I was with her. I caved and got that stupid epidural after 20 hours with him, which turned out to be a dumb decision, because I'm apparently not a good candidate for it (I already have low blood pressure, so mine plummeted to 88/30 -- plus my legs were dead weight and I was numb to my neck. Not good). Anyway, the natural waterbirth was what I needed with her (and is also the route I'm taking this time). Anyway, here's my pretty little girl. She's growing up so fast, and I love her sweet personality! She's so calm and easy-going, and funny too!
