1 Year

1 year ago today, my daughter was born.

And my whole life was forever changed.

It was love at first sight.

Her eyes, her tiny curls, her soft whimper, her little toes….perfect.

In this past year, I’ve never:

  • Laughed harder
  • Cried more
  • Slept less
  • Picked up more
  • Hugged so much
  • Showered less
  • Hurt more
  • Been so fulfilled
  • Smiled so much
  • Taken sooooo many pictures
  • Drank so much coffee

and I’ve definitely never

  • Loved so much

This little girl has my heart and she’s  taught me more about love than I could ever imagine.

Time has gone too fast and this little girl is 1!

It seems like yesterday I was listening to her heartbeat and getting little ultrasound pictures and now she’s walking around my living room dancing to music.

All I can think of….is that time has gone too fast

But I wouldn’t trade a second of it.

Here’s to the best year of my life, AvaMarie.

I love you!

(Here’s some of my favorite moments) (PS-trying to limit the pictures was TORTURE, so sorry in advance…I tried to keep it just to a few)

week 40

We made it!
We made it!
