Today we celebrated Chloe's first Birthday. I remember so clearly being in the hospital doing every thing in my power to deliver my baby naturally. It's been exactly 1 year since the birth and I am still a bit disappointed I ended up with another C-section. You can read more about my birth experience here. One day I'll get over it, but I am still bummed!
This year with Chloe has been filled with ups and downs. Having kids is definitely a juggling act. Seeing my 2 girls interact with one another is one of the biggest joys. I now have 2 little girls that fill my heart with so much love I just can't stand it.
This year I decided not to have a birthday party for Chloe. I just wanted to experience the moment with us. After losing a dear friend 2 weeks ago, it's been really hard for me to want to plan any sort of party. It's not like Chloe will ever remember this any way.
Of course I made some yummy banana apple sauce muffins (cupcakes) for her. I made the same ones for Lyla for her first birthday, but this time I added a little Maple Agave to it. I guess we loosen up a little with the 2nd kid! It's still super healthy. I can post the recipe if anyone takes interest.
I am just happy we all made it through the first year! Most people tell me that when adding a second child to the family, the first year is usually the most challenging. Let's see if it gets any easier. I plan on posting some updates on how my training is going in addition to some new endeavors that I have taken on. Life is never boring and filled with so much excitement!
