His First Year

On Tuesday Soren turned one! Goodness!  That first birthday is quite a milestone, for baby and mama.

The first year is a dance of such big and little things: finding balance, sleepless nights, hope and growth and milk and tears and so many firsts. And through it all, the biggest, fiercest love.

One year!

For his special day we took a walk along the river and in the woods, and on our way home saw an eagle flying overhead which felt especially magical. He opened a few simple gifts, then the day ended with his first taste of apple pie and whipped cream.

A perfect day to celebrate our Soren!
