Emma's First Year

The past year of my life has been a true blessing. Of course have been the difficult times thorough it but the amazing times that come make me forget about anything that has been challenging. I hope my little girl knows how much her mommy and daddy love her. 

 The memories that I have experienced in my 30 years of life have not even come close to the past year.  I understand now why some people chose to have a army of kids. 
I do not want the army....but I get it.

 Her smile when she sees me no matter if I have been gone for a hour or just 60 seconds. 
The hug when she walks over after she does something she is proud of and wants to celebrate.
Grabbing at my legs while I am trying to make dinner.
Her laugh histaricly when I tickle her belly and feet is priceless.
I could go on forever....

Being Emma's mommy is such a amazing experience and I am so lucky she is mine.

I hope you have many many more wonderful years.

And just because I was thinking that I could get EVEN better photos holding the letters....
I think there was a little tooth poking out on this day..and also the shadows don't help.
Her ears are not nearly that big .

My goal is to make a canvas every year on near Emma's birthday.

One last photo as a smiley 11 month old
Last sleep as a 11 month old.


  1. What an amazing first year she has had! :)

  2. Happy Birthday, sweet girl! I love watching you grow!

    I was just looking at pictures of each of my kids when they were itty bitty babies, and it almost made me want another. And then Evelyn was up half the night.... ;-)

  3. Can't believe its already been a year!!! She's such a doll!!!

  4. Awe, I cried with you. She can't be ONE! I'm telling you! She's absolutely adorable!
