Yesterday Isabelle turned 10 months old, I didn't expect it to be so emotional... but it was. I sat with tears in my eyes looking at my picture trail from when this journey began unto now. I had an overwhelming need to hit the damn 'pause' button, everything is happening too fast. It feels like just yesterday I was packing my bags for the hospital, urging her to come join me on the 'outside'. I look up and she's cruising, babbling, and gobbling up a peach.
Not long she'll get right up and walk out the door, down the street and on her own. I love watching her grown, but I will tell you it surely is a heartbreaking joy.
