due date - one year later


A year ago now you were due to arrive

Thought you'd be in me until you were five

You took your sweet time and arrived 12 days late

My whole world's been different since that date


My baby, my sweetness, my angel, my truth

I celebrate the first year of your youth...


You waited inside and my body turned round


Then you came from the heavens to this earthly ground


In the first hours the world seemed brand new

After the first week I still just stared at you

And you grew............


One month old and sleeping with grace


Two months old - Maui sun on your face


Three months old with pretty pierced ears


Four months old, smiling brings happy tears


At five months you're sitting and growing


Six months in mid-October, glowing


Seven months old and beginning to crawl


Eight months - naked time feels best of all


At nine months your tenth airplane ride


Ten months - your mouth has two teeth inside!


Eleven months old and walking around


Almost a year and my awe is profound

I love you, Luciya!

Love,
Mama

Oooh, I can't wait to see her next week. Just love her sweet little buggy face and how her energy/ personality comes thru in photos. Our sweet Luciya.
