Happy Birthday Baby!

Today, our daughter has her first birthday. DiDi is one. This is not going to be a long post, because I cannot dwell on the fact that we are missing this day. This big day. It is too hard to think about for any amount of time. I can't linger on the firsts we have missed, just on the ones we will actually get to experience. I can't do anything about the former, so I will try to focus on the latter. We are celebrating with her in spirit, and I am even baking a cake. For those of you who know me at all, you can pick your jaw right up off the floor. It's from a mix, ok?! I may even take a little photo of it to share the hilarity with you tomorrow. If you are reading this on the 30th, please take a moment to send good thoughts and wishes her way. I hope her care package made it in time. I hope they do something special for her today. I hope she gets extra attention and love. I hope a lot of things. Happy Birthday, my love. We will finally see you very, very soon. * Regarding the photo, I am clearly not a computer graphics wizard, ok? Don't mock me too much...

I just got that blog spam the other day (also my first!)
Regarding your post:
It is extremely difficult to think about the things that we missed during our daughters' first year here in the world, but you all will have a lifetime of firsts to celebrate together...
it is still something that I think about from time to time, but I don't let myself think too deeply about it cuz it makes me too sad.

Have a beautiful first birthday party as a family once you have her home with you...it won't matter that it is a tad late. It will still be her very 1st b-day party celebration and it will be grand...I look forward to seeing pics from that special day!

Lee, we took the time to think of Yuandi today with a dorky little photo session. I don't have time to upload it right now, but I promise to get it to you ASAP.

She'll be with you very very soon. Hold on.

Since you know my talents with the computer, you know I will tell you that you did an awesome job! It is a great picture. Very soon, you will have many firsts to share with her, so hold on to that thought.

I feel like baking, but do not need to be eating, so if you ever want anything........ :)

Big hug your way. You will be in that big old jet airliner, heading east, soon!
