13.5 Months–Toddler Mom Life

13.5 months ago, I became a mother.  I still can’t believe it.  I can’t believe that a baby grew in my belly, was born, and is the spunky happy child that she is.  I know this is super cheesy, but it was 13.5 months ago that I learned what true love, sacrifice, happiness and exhaustion…
