All at once.
Happy birthday to her.
Happy birthday to me.
I didn't know it then, but until that moment, I was only a half-person, walking through my days feeling fulfilled and accomplished only because I didn't know any better.
It was like before my daughter was born I was happy in my kiddie pool in my fenced-in backyard, and with my daughter I was given the beach and the ocean.
Happy birthday, Audrey Grace. You have been my mirror, my teacher, my comedic relief, and my constant companion, and it's only been five years. I can't imagine what else is in store in the coming years... but I am so glad I get to find out. You are amazing.
