School of Rox - ONE year

I feel its appropriate that I begin writing this post at about the moment I started pushing a year ago at this time? To much information? Ha, I talk about it candidly because I am thankful for a picture perfect delivery. I really feel spoiled and realize I probably won't have another one like it, but then again maybe I will. If you are curious about this. You can read her birth story here. I did indeed get an epidural and I wouldn't change a thing. We got to hang out with all our friends and family, comfortably and peacefully just moments before I started pushing. If you know Officer and I- this is the dream. Its not for everyone but we are both extroverts who love being in a crowd.

Now. To my love. Fox you should know, as your dad and I talked last night about your birthday (I cried of course), we both feel like the day you arrived was the greatest day we have ever had together. Not even our wedding tops it (and we had a great wedding). To bring you into the world with the dearest people in the world surrounding us was priceless. You are a part of an amazing family and you got to feel that the day we welcomed you.

Now you are one. GULP. Here are your letters on each of the other months of your first year of life:
