One. Happy Birthday, Hudson!

It’s been a long, full day. I have so much to say, and very very little. But on Hudson’s birthday, I’m feeling wistful, sad, happy, hopeful, blessed, full, loved. More words, perhaps more profound, to come.

Spending the day together could only have been better with you, baby girl.

I’m sorry this is the only way you get to mother Hudson, I feel like a petulant child and I want to stomp my foot and scream “it isn’t fair!” for you, you are your husband seem so full of love and compassion and had she been allowed to stay you would have filled her every living day with so much happiness, just as you did when she was here.

    I hope you made it through her birthday relatively unscathed.
