A Whole Year of Chicken

Guys, we made it.

In some ways, the hard part is over. I won’t miss the frequent diaper blowouts, for example.

In other ways, the easy part is over. Loving a baby is simple and straightforward.

This past month has been rough, as I’ve been helping my mother deal with a medical issue,  but through it all Hazel has been a champion. Not many babies can say they perfected their walking skills in the Mayo Clinic halls.

Even though Hazel is enjoying more foods, we are still nursing three times a day. Attempts to drop the mid-day feeding have been met with….resistance. And yes, we’re still cloth diapering. I have a load drying on the line right now.

As for tricks, she will now wave good-bye and blow kisses. She claps and gives high-five.

She makes all of us laugh, every day, with her funny faces and baby gibberish.

We are completely enamored of her, and can barely remember a time she wasn’t part of our family.

Happy Birthday to my tiny bunny.
