Cora is three! Three! I can hardly believe that 3 years ago I was being induced and having the easiest labor and birth of all the three I have experienced so far!
One of the weirdest parenting thoughts I have when we are celebrating the kids’ birthdays is the part were one second they are just here. These little beings go from non existence to entering the world in full force. How can something go from not being into being? A living thing. A baby. A physical representation of the future. and hope. and all that stuff.
It is so hard to comprehend that there was a time before Cora. That for 27 years of my life I wandered around this planet NOT knowing Cora. How could there have ever been a life without her? Without her siblings? It is one of the mysteries of life I suppose, but it also gets me all emotional and weird when I start letting myself go down that path of thoughts. Babies are magic that way.
Cora Elizabeth is our spunky, sassy, plucky, bold princess of a daughter. She is fiery and full of spirit. She is sweet and courageous and fearless. She is everything I ever dreamed of having in a daughter (though it does make parenting her a bit more difficult than expected!). Happy Birthday wild girl!
