What is it about the 1st birthday? It is such an emotional milestone for me. It is so bittersweet. I guess it is that the "baby" stage is over in the blink of an eye. Harper received her first birthday card and present today in the mail- waterworks already! Like Russ said- it is going to be a long couple days around her until the 8th- well actually the 9th when we are having a small birthday party for her. We have professional pictures Friday morning and then we will celebrate just the four of us in the evening. We will then celebrate with some close friends and family on Saturday.
