Today is Scout's first birthday. The left side was taken exactly one year ago yesterday when Anja woke me up because she was in labor and wanted to have breakfast as two people one more time. Right side is today with these two angels who handled this tough year better than anyone else out there.
A photo caption can't begin to sum up how incredible of a mother Anja is, but I will try. Even since before Scout was born Anja constantly impressed me with the thought and care she put into every action as a human and a mother. It's been beautiful to watch Anja form a bond with Scout that's beyond biology and genetics. Scout couldn't have a better mother and I couldn't have a better partner in this adventure.
