today is my firstborn's birth day. my cinco de mayo girl. my hannah. who taught me so much about being a mama. about who i am. and who i want to be. she is 26 today and has two babies of her own now, but it seems only yesterday i gave birth to her and was holding her in my arms and nursing her. she's taught me so very much. and was the guiding light on my path to all of the personal, albeit alternative, choices i've made in my life. child-led weaning, family bed, waldorf homeschooling, homebirthing, attachment parenting, baby wearing, and so much more. i love you, my sweet hannah. i'm so happy you chose me to be your mama! and i am so proud of the person and now the mama that you've become. you are an inspiration to me every single day and i love you more than you could ever know!
yours on this very special day,
