Felix’s birthday celebration today! If anyone on the webz wants to make a donation in honor of Felix’s first year, may I suggest these fine organizations?
The Cleft Palate Foundation
Thanks to everyone for supporting my family and me through my pregnancy and Felix’s first year. Our friends online have done so much to keep me afloat during the hardest parts of this journey. I don’t know how people kept their spirits up before social media!
You’re the best kinds of people, you are. Thanks again.

Happy birthday, baby boy!
This was the best, hardest, scariest day ever. I’m so glad we got THIS baby and that he’s changed my life and my heart so completely. He’s so brave and so sweet and like his dad in so many ways. He still hardly ever fusses or cries. He can tell me he wants to get down from his high chair, he can tell me he wants a banana. He can fall asleep on his own and drink from a sippy cup. He pats me on the back when I burp him and he shakes his head/whole body when I say, “No, no!” He claps and dances and pinches my arm fat while he’s nursing. He smiles a me and makes me forget all the things in my life that are frustrating or unfair. He laughs at his brother even when his brother is being naughty. He’ll feed you a piece of pasta or a cheerio when he’s had enough to eat. He can say mama and dada and uh oh but he mostly doesn’t say much, like his dad.
Love you, buddy! I’m so glad you’re my kid. xox

My sister and I have just finished trading “Call Me Maybe” lyrics on gchat.
Me: I’m not at all embarrassed that I love her.
Me: I’m not even jealous that she got to hang out with Jimmy Fallon and The Roots.
Sam: That’s real love.
Me: I mean, I’m jealous, but I don’t begrudge her.
