you are one today…


I’m really not quite sure you ever fit in your dad’s arms like this. It seems like I just dreamed it… and a year ago was just a memory of fantasy. You’ve been a wonderful baby, and we’ve loved to see you grow through all of each of your stages with amazement.

But just as I can’t believe you were that little and tiny and quiet back then… I really can’t believe that only a year later you’re THIS big!


Big enough to get excited about glittery sneakers that your dad got you for your birthday. And big enough to give air kisses, and big hugs and wave hello and bye bye to everyone that passes.

I’m pretty sure I might cry today more than I did when you were born, just because I can’t seem to convince myself that you’re no longer a baby…but now a little girl.

Goodbye Baby M… hello Miss L!
