Today is my baby’s third birthday. We’ll be starting the day with our annual tradition – hiking with him up a local mountain trail at sunrise – and we’ll end the day with a dinner of his choice (or, since he’s a toddler, with whatever dinner he’ll eat). There were many moments in the years leading up to Finn’s birth that I thought I might never get to be a mom, and some days I stare at him in disbelief, astounded that he is actually here. He’s obsessed with vacuums and most electronics, loves to ask questions and is always down for an adventure. Finn, we love you so.
