1st birthday theme | Winter Onederland
I started thinking about our daughter’s 1st birthday theme this summer as my husband and I drove to the beach. Our 8 month old daughter was sound asleep in the back seat. At the time, it seemed almost silly. Too early to be thinking about her first birthday. Then I blinked. December was here. Our daughter was turning one. And I have know idea how that sweet newborn I was holding in my arms just a year ago grew up so fast! I’m sure all you moms know that feeling. Where does the time go?
Everyone warned me it would fly by. I knew it would, but I guess I just didn’t expect it go by that fast. The memories of holding my newborn daughter in the hospital. And those first terrifying nights at home that only a first time parent can understand. Did they seriously think we were capable of keeping this tiny person alive?!? These memories are still so vivid.
But sitting in front of me is a daughter who now is holding onto furniture to cruise. She is babbling away as if we are having a logical conversation. Each day she shows me just how much she is growing. It is amazing how much she changed in one year’s time. And even more amazing is how a love for her that seems to be more than I thought humanly possible. And that love continues to grow deeper with each passing day. Happy 1st birthday Autumn! We love you!
