Today I realized that it is the two-year anniversary of the day Cora came to be. Not that I'm all about celebrating her conception day as my own deal... that's kind of weird, isn't it?
But two years ago today, two cells came together to start the process that resulted in my lovely little silly little spectacular extra-chromosomed girl. Two years that she has been in existence. It all started the day after Mother's Day... rather serendipitous, if you ask me.
To me that seems like a kind of big deal. A day to be happy.
We were lucky to have a bright, blue sunny Portland day. And then for dinner we took ourselves out for a lovely date of great pizza (yes, Cora loved it too), a little beer, and some fun live kid's music. Then for dessert we went for gourmet ice cream. Some caramel salted dark chocolate kind of gourmet goodness. Yes, Cora loved that too.
Now my girlie is tucked up in bed, lightly snoring for hopefully a good number of uninterrupted hours. I will even keep my fingers crossed that she sleeps in until the late hour of 6:00 a.m. A girl can dream, can't she?
