525,600 Minutes

(Note: this post was written previously and scheduled to appear today, on Celia's 2nd birthday, in case we were otherwise engaged with Shim's arrival...)

525,600 minutes, 525,000 moments so dear.

525,600 minutes - how do you measure, measure a year?

In daylights, in sunsets, in midnights, in cups of coffee.

In inches, in miles, in laughter, in strife.
In 525,600 minutes - how do you measure a year in the life?
How about love? How about love? How about love?
Measure in love.

These lyrics, from RENT, remind us that, although it wasn't exactly the kind of year we may have wished for when we helped Celia blow out one candle a year ago, it has been a year full of love, and that's the best way to spend a year, especially when we're not sure how many years we'll have with her...

"Dos" es dos! Happy birthday Jenni baby and little Dos baby! However, aren't the odds of having a "Tres" baby incomprehensible? Just curious.
