2 years.

Today we celebrate. 2 years with our Bina baby. I am equal parts sad, proud, and amazed.

As we watched her fall to sleep, Paul said "She rocked our world 2 years ago!" That she did. The baby that surprised us twice, and has the best kind of story.
I am not shy to admit 3 kids was a hard adjustment for me, kids 2 years apart was hard for me, and making the big move to being a working Mom, to stay at home was hard too.
I look back on the past 2 years feeling proud, because I survived something hard for me. I can even feel amazed that I did it. 2 in diapers, 2 not sleeping through the night, nursing past the 1 year mark...I am stronger than I think I am.
I can also look back and feel sad that I don't have a baby anymore {it wasn't all hard and bad}. She has turned in to a smart, opinionated, independent little soul. I love watching her grow up, and learn. It is definitely bittersweet.
We felt strongly that our Sabrina was going to come to our family, and I am thankful she did. Her smile is contagious, her kisses are endless, and she takes her snuggling very seriously.
Sabrina was easy to fall in love with, especially when she flashes you her amazing smile. Feeling extra grateful that we got a happy ending after everything we went through to get her here. She is our miracle, and I will never understand how we got so lucky to have her in our family.
 Love you sweet Bina Jane.
