This picture was taken on E’s first birthday, at his grandma’s house.
This picture is bittersweet for me. There were a lot of things that went on that day – some exciting things (he’s a year old, his first cupcake, hooray!), but also some not good things. I hate that his first birthday will most likely always be tinged with some negative feelings, but it’s in the past now and I can’t change that. I’ll spare the details here, but suffice it to say his birthday was not what I envisioned.
(Please note that we had his birthday party a little more than a week in advance, due to Thanksgiving.)
And that’s all I have to say about that. For now.
