    This Day in 2005

    February 22, 2006 by Brandy Vencel
    One year ago today, at this very moment, I was enjoying a dose of post-surgical morphine and a little bundle of joy. It is very hard to believe it has been a year already. Here is a mother-daughter photo. I try to avoid the new digital camera as best I can, but Si loves to use it, especially when I am without makeup. Like the outfit? Rebecca made sure the little angel was appropriately attired for Valentine’s Day this year. {Hi, R!} Just in time for the party {Friday night}, she is toddling all over the house. She has also learned to yell at her brother, which comes in handy when defending her territory. This is usually accompanied by the Death Grip, holding fast to whatever it is he is attempting to steal from her. We anticipate that she will refuse to show off her tricks once the crowd has gathered, and Si and I will be there, insisting that she knows how to eat solid foods/walk/say “please” or whatever else we have asked her to do. She can be a stubborn baby. She is surely a gift from God, and has blessed this house with her presence, starting the very first time she slept through the night! {He he.} It is amazing to me that we previously lived our whole lives without her, and yet now we cannot imagine them differently. She was certainly a “perfect fit” for our little family.

    A. is really growing up! I can’t believe how much she has changed since the last time I saw her.
