The Captain is 1 Year!

So apparently a year has past since our baby was born. Officially, we celebrated Helina's birthday two days ago (coincidentally, on what was her due date), but today is her actual birthday. Although I've had a few days to come to terms with Helina being one, I still can't wrap my mind around it. On one hand, it seems like she was just born, yet at the same time, it also feels like she has always been here. It is a bit of a paradox, but I'm told this is what happens when you have kids. I'm not sure how I feel about time progressing in this manner for the rest of my life, but I'm guessing I shouldn't waste too much time thinking about it or another year might pass me by unexpectedly. 

As you can see, Helina is willing to wear the hat again:

1 Year!
Well, sort of. This was a lucky shot. She actually pulled the hat off her head moments after I snapped this picture. However, while taking this month's hat photo, I discovered something interesting about Helina's hat preferences. Although she is opposed to wearing the Commander's hat, she is more than happy to wear the Lieutenant's hat (I have several pictures that I can produce as evidence). She might be a big 1-year-old, but I guess she's just not ready to hold the rank of Commander. Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown. So, moving forward, Lieutenant it is (although I think the hat photos might move to an annual schedule).
