It was 7 years ago on Saturday that we welcomed our Miss Julia into the world.
I remember the night we brought her home. She was two days old. I was exhausted. So exhausted that I just had to sleep. But I could not because of a hungry baby that was waiting for milk to come in. Around midnight Daniel said he would take her downstairs. Not long afterwards she fell asleep in his arms. I remember drifting off to sleep thinking that everything was going to be okay.
It was too hot to bake a cake on the day of Julia's birthday. So we waited until the next day.
Julia asked for a caramel cake. I found an old Women's Weekly recipe for Butterscotch Teacake. The icing proved to be rather addictive.
Then I realized I had no candles. So I poked a rose into the middle. Julia didn't seem to mind.
She lost her front tooth the same day.
I think she likes her new bike. Happy 7th birthday Julia.
