Bonne Fête Romi!!!!!

One year old today. I'm not as sad as I thought I would be, maybe the daycare integration took care of the separation angst. I'm still super sad though, just not *as sad* as I thought I'd be. But I'll miss her like crazy. And now that I'm writing this out, I'm feeling soooo nostalgic and broken. Cause no one will ever love her as much as I do.
On with the show.
Here's a retrospective look at what we went through one year ago today. It started off rough with a fractured femur 2 weeks before I gave birth to Miss coconut... And Liam came home with a spica cast 3 days after I gave birth.

Our stay in the hospital:
And even though I was saddened due to my induction (pre-eclampsia), and I was stuck in the nastiest of all hospitals (Royal-Victoria), and that we had an injured boy at home, it was still the best day of my life. I can speak for Nico as well as myself when I say that our 2 kids are the best thing that ever happened to us. I won't go into the cheesiness, but it is what it is. And we are, finally, a family.

I can't imagine my child in a cast like that- and to leave him must have been so hard. At least it was for a good reason - what an adorable little girl. Happy birthday Miss Coco!

Entuk, moi je pense que la meilleure chose qui soit arrivé c'est que toute deux on travaille au Dunkin donut, sinon t'aurais jamais rencontré Nico et t'aurais pas eu les enfants les plus cutie dla vie. OUi oui.
