It's so crazy how much can change in just 1 year, especially babies. It just amazes me that this little human can go from inside a womb and living in fluid, to outside the womb and breathing air in just a matter of seconds. And then to go from such a helpless little thing that can't hold their head up or see anything, to a baby who is walking and talking in just a year's time. Amazing, isn't it?
As amazing as it is, it's also a little bittersweet when its your own baby. And even more so when it's the baby of your little family. The last one. The last baby you'll ever see go through this transition moment-to-moment, day-to-day.
Yet, as sad as it is. We celebrate such milestones with parties. Parties that remind us that life keeps moving whether we want it to or not and parties that remind us that a life moving along is a blessing.
So we celebrated. We celebrated our blessing turning 1. A happy, healthy, growing, thriving, whole year full of blessings wrapped into one tiny little human, who a year ago was living in fluid and hadn't yet entered this world. She turned one.
And here is our celebration...
