While in my belly- she hated loud noises.
I breastfed her for the first 5 months of her life.
She was a pacifier snob and would only take one certain kind.
We watched a Lifetime movie every afternoon with her snuggled asleep in my arms.
She didn't learn to walk until after she was a year old.
She is my baby. My firstborn.
And today she left for intermediate school. And it just doesn't seem possible.
I refrained from packing breastmilk and rice cereal in her lunch bag.
