So it happened.  The day that I had been looking forward to for an entire year.  On January 14th Lucy turned one. 
I had been planning her party in my head ever since she was born.  It was something that kept my thoughts postive and kept them from thinking we might not see a 1st birthday with her here. 
The night before felt like Christmas.  We were all so excited.  The kids woke up early and we all greeted Lucy with Happy Birthday singing and lots of hugs and kisses. 
Sometimes I am unaware at how much Lucys birth and hospital stay affected the kids.  Lily wanted to bring cupcakes to school to celebrate with her class Lucy turning one.  They all told everybody that Lucy was 1 years old.  They are just as proud of her as we are. 
My sweet Lucy, you were my rainbow when things got so dark. You still are. You are a constant bright spot in all our lives. You have come so far. Defied all the odds. You are determined, funny, serious, curious and beautiful. I can't wait to see what this year holds for you. For us.
Happy Birthday baby girl, may all your wishes come true!
