Yesterday our sweet Hannah turned three. She was been so excited about her special day. For the last two weeks the first thing that she asked as I got her out of bed each morning was, “My birthday today??”. It was so nice to be able to say, “yes!”.
A year ago, I felt very aware of it being her first birthday with us. I was thinking a lot about Hannah’s birth parents, and what emotions that this time of year brings for them.
This year felt different. We again lit a candle in honor of Hannah’s birth parents, and I hope to always have that tradition. At the same time, she feels so completely “ours”.
I had just one passing moment of sadness when Z asked me what time Hannah was born. Of course we have no idea, and in reality have no idea what day she was actually born. It makes me sad that I don’t have all the answers.
I’m happy that I have some of the answers though. We were thrilled to make her morning with a bowl of “Dora” cereal.
We hugged her and sang to her as many times as she asked us to (it was a lot 🙂 ). Most importantly we had a day of joy, celebrating the day that Hannah was born into the world.
Happy 3rd Birthday sweet girl, we love you so much!!!!!
