On Friday, we had a birthday party for Tehilla at a local park. Many of our family and friends came. It was a beautiful day outside, with a slight breeze. Tehilla had skipped her morning nap, so she was cranky nearly the entire party. Ron and I have such a hard time believing that she is one years old already, and that we made it to this point. It was wonderful to be able to celebrate with everyone.
This past vacation was really wonderful for us, as a family. After our pre-Yom Kippur scare, we really made all the effort to make Sukkot and Shmini Atzeret/Simchat Torah very relaxing and fun for all of us and to spend time with our friends. It was very therapeutic.
