Already?!

















Ahh, the sound of paper ripping.....


tissue paper crumpling.....


the Happy Birthday song....


the look on a one-year old's face with a lit candle on a whole cake all to herself.....


the sound of warm water running to clean up this:



There was no puking, no crying, and no stopping this little girl from devouring her own big fat cake. My baby is one. She's seen the "outside world" for one whole year. As I went through her baby book to fill in her birthday activities, I was skimming through the pages.....so much of what I wrote down about her first months I had already forgotten about! I don't know what to write about today, other than how much I love my baby and how every quality minute I spend with her goes by too fast. If I don't stop to breathe in the days, they will pass me by. They already are. :) Here's to smelling the roses....

You're back!!! What a sweetie. Can't believe she's one and there is another on the way. I loved giving my kids their own cake, it always made for great laughs (and photos).
