This winter has been long. Truth be told, I think every winter is long, and it makes me feel old, but I think I hate the winter worse and worse each year.
Despite this, perhaps, seasonal depression, many positive things have happened this winter. Daphne has changed so much since her August birth. While the trees sleep and the flowers wait to bloom, Daphne is thriving.
Snow first came down onto her precious dark hair on Thanksgiving this year.
With snow came new fashion accessories as well.
Daphne's first Christmas was lively as it was the first time she met three of her cousins, my darling niece Lily and adorable nephews Parker and Julian.
|Jon named it Pinky. I would have been more clever, but, it stuck.|
She was so adorable opening gifts and meeting Santa. Her personality is just really starting to shine through.
As we start this new year
I yearn for more days like this
but, I know that they will soon be here, and I need to enjoy every second of our journey.
