You might be thinking about having another baby. Your adorable bundle of joy is now a little bigger than a bundle. She's grown so quickly this past year. She's a marvel to look at, and you wouldn't trade her for the world. Still, you are probably missing the tiny hands and feet and the helpless baby that you brought home such a short time ago.
