This past Tuesday our sweet AlteLu turned 1! It's hard to believe that this little lady lover has been in our lives for a whole year. In some ways it seems like she just got here. I am so grateful for the time I have had with her, getting to know her, learn who she is, and support her as she grows. She is funny, inquisitive, and strong-willed. She has lots of opinions, ideas, wants, and desires. She currently says, "this," "that," and "touch," and gives the most delicious kisses with a loud "mmmmmm." We simply can't imagine our life or our family without her. She has brought us so much joy and happiness, while keeping us on our toes.
We also flew home from SD on Tuesday, which was a really nice way to spend her birthday because the 4 of us were together for the whole day. We went to breakfast at The Broken Yolk, flew home, and then arrived back in our cozy house. It felt so good to walk in the door, take a shower, and get into bed. Hersh said, "Ima, we have the nicest house of anywhere." On Monday night, which was our last night in SD and our last night with Sabba and Savta, we brought cupcakes down to the beach and had a little celebration for our lady. She enjoyed her cupcake for sure. Can't wait to see what the next year brings for our Alte Luna!
