Today is our 1 year wedding anniversary (no need to do the math...). I'm not a woman without a past or skeletons in my closet, but I will say this. This has been one of the most trying years of my life - bar none. However, through it all, I've truly never been more at peace in my heart and happier in my relationship. I love you honey! More than I ever could say! Thank you for giving me you! You make me the happiest I've ever been even through everything we're going through and you've given me the best little girl I could have ever asked for. You are my everything. XOXOXO
This week was hard. V got sick on Sunday and was sick all week long. She went to school for a total of 4 hours and in the process, got me sick, so towards the end of the week, we were both pretty miserable. Thank God for my mom who came and helped me 4 times out of the week, including Saturday during the day and night. Now, V seems to be getting much better and me, although I still am pretty congested, am getting better right behind her. This too shall pass.
So, on to more exciting things. Today, we went to Uncle N's and Aunt E's for V's 9 month photo shoot! The pics turned out so good! I'm going to try to edit some of my faves this week and post, but here are a handful from the raw footage.
Sugars for Daddy!
A true Russian face! Can't escape your genes!
The necklace V's wearing is an amber teething necklace. She's 9 months old and still no teeth, but MONTHS and MONTHS of teething. So, a friend of mine had one of these for her daughter and she swears by it, and I figured that it's worth a try. If nothing else, it looks pretty.
