Since I'm still without a camera, I thought I'd pull a few pictures from the archives for you of Lydia's 11th birthday. These were taken on one of the best days of my life. I'm not sure why this day impacted me so much. It might be because on this particular birthday, several members of Lydia's dad's family, along with my family, were all there. Lydia's dad is Noah. Noah and I haven't been together as a couple since before Lydia was born, but I'm thankful we have a peaceful relationship. I'm not gonna lie...it was bumpy for a little while, but you eventually come to a place you just accept the situation for what it is and move on.
