My rainbow baby Everett’s first birthday is coming up this weekend, and I wanted to share some of the thoughts I’ve been processing as we get ready to celebrate.
I didn’t mention this in the episode, but I have had moments of overwhelm thinking of how to best celebrate Everett’s birthday and I keep wondering, am I doing enough? Because there is so much I want to do to show him how grateful I am that he’s here. But ultimately, there is no better way I can think of spending his birthday than for us to enjoy his presence, to play his favorite toys with him, to watch him entertain himself with the springy doorstop, and to watch him experience his first bite of cake. So here’s to your first year, babe, we’re going to have such a fun day. Happy birthday, my son!
