Nugget's Year in Numbers (Month 6 Day 26)


A year ago today she wasn't here (at least not outside my huge belly). A year ago tomorrow she was. 

Sometimes I reflect on the last 12 months and wonder how can the year go so fast. And the next moment I'm skeptical that it's only been 12. How can it possibly not have been longer given how much change has happened in those months?

A year ago I was admitted to the hospital for her arrival. And now she's walking. It's possible and impossible at the same time.

Where did the year go? This is where it went.

3,541 diaper changes
7 months breast feeding
4,760 ounces of formula
8 teeth
30 inches
23 pounds
2 sorta words
Countless sounds and babbles
3 doctor visits, not counting wellness checkups
2 sonograms checking breech-y hips
1 case of mastitis (her, not me)
1 stomach virus
1 case of croup
3 cases of diarrhea
0 ear infections (how did that happen?)
1 funeral
3 out-of-state trips (Kansas City, Denver, Boston)
4 airplane rides (Denver, Boston) 
99 loads of baby laundry
4 days away from her
1 favorite book (Where's Baby's Belly Button?)
2 favorite games (patty cake and peek a boo)
2,032 pictures and videos taken
185 baths
10 days of walking short distances unassisted
1 cesarean section scar
1000s of smiles, giggles and hugs
1 beautiful girl

What a great post!
It's so great that you're recording all of this for her and for you & DH. Can you imagine another year? Sixteen years??
