Happy Birthday, Sassy Girl

I am currently recovering from Sassy Girl's Birthday Weekend Extravaganza. Not only did we host both sets of grandparents, but we survived a birthday party attended by 15 two and three year olds. Ebo used his engineering degree by helping rig a pinata to break by pulling a string. Who knew physics could be so useful?

In my last post, I was reminiscing about how difficult it was to bring Sassy Girl into this world. Though the memories don't affect me as much anymore, the pain of infertility, IVF, and Sassy Girl's traumatic birth will remain with me always. I don't take any day with her for granted. Happy birthday, little girl! I love you!

I think it's going to happen this way for a long time. IF is so traumatic. Even when the story ends happily, it is something that will remain tattooed on us for a lifetime. It may fade at times and even be fogotten for a bit, but it is always there.

You've been throgh so much. It's healthy that you can appreciate your success without forgetting how it came to be.
