You've come a long way, Baby!

Today is Scarlett's first birthday. A year ago today, Nate and I held this darling little bundle of newborn warmth in our arms and fell in love. She was a mystery to me at the time...I couldn't wait to get to know her. Her dark hair and eyes reminded me of her father, and it felt strange to know that he and I created this life. I couldn't believe that we were a family of three. Sometimes when I reflect on the past year, I can not believe it was only a year--so much has happened and my little newborn bundle has grown into a darling little toddler. (Considering the amount of sleep I lost, I was probably awake for an extra three or four months!) But today, I feel like time has flown and in the blink of an eye we are celebrating a birthday. I know that she will continue to grow and change at break-neck pace, so I am just going to hang on for dear life and treasure every single moment. When we say our prayers tonight, I will definitely thank God for Scarlett.

Time does fly, my oldest turned 9 today and I can still remember holding her in my arms for the first time and how that only seems like a short time ago. Congrats on the new addition as well, although I could have gone without seeing the stick that you pp'd on. :)
