All the cliches of parenthood are true. Sappy and true. The one that stands out today is they grow up so fast. While little Louise isn't exactly grown up yet, she is growing, and fast. And her turning one today is, well, a little tough for me. I don't think it felt as heart-tugging when Griffin turned one. It was more of a celebration. He's going to devour his cake! (He gagged on it.) And surely I'll get there, but I'm starting at a place of heart-pang today as my little baby now enters the age of years.
