today you are one

Hello Birthday Girl,

Today you turn one and we are celebrating.

I can’t believe you were once this little. All wrapped up like a burrito.
As much as I want to remember the morning after I gave birth to you with vivid details, I don’t. I do recall this: your Papa had stepped out and I was alone with you for the first time. I remember thinking, oh my goodness, she’s here! What do I do now? Luckily, all you did was sleep.

But just as I can’t believe you were that little, I can’t believe you are this big now. To see you with 4 teeth and 2 more on the way. To see you walking…sometimes running. To see you slowly figuring out the world around you.

Look at you now!
Anna's First Birthday
I love these pictures of us at your birthday party. We look good together, baby.

You are getting so big. But, I refuse to be sad and dwell about that. You were meant to grow and I am happy you are thriving. I don’t take for granted for your health and happiness. Grow, my little girl, big and tall and strong. xoxo.
