Happy first birthday, Hazel!
Fight · er [fīdər]
noun : a person who does not easily admit defeat in spite of difficulties or opposition.
If the definition above doesn't accurately describe this sweet babe, I don't know what does. Spending well over 200 days in the NICU after birth, Hazel was born early with some special complications that she is still fighting through. This badass babe just celebrated her first birthday last week surrounded by friends, family, & her NICU family!
I met her (equally badass) mama Amanda a few years back, & it's so cool to see her transition into a new title: "mom". I was thrilled when she invited me over for a first birthday session for Hazel with her & her hubby Jamie, even if they were in the midst of party prep. The coolest part? Her session was on her actual birthday!
Hazel, I can't wait to see where your journey takes you, as you're obviously slated for big & great things.
