It is an accepted fact that these little ones in our care grow up far too quickly. And I think it has a lot to do with our struggle to keep up with the day-to-day of living (clean dishes anyone?) while still trying to stop + be fascinated with these tiny humans (that wrinkle-nose smile never gets old!).
So it is with this in mind that I say, “when did you grow up already!?” + “Slow down on that growing-up thing” so I can be in the moment with her more. These desires to be present + observe all her little personality traits are what motivate me to get a dishwasher (true story) + hire a cleaning lady (if only for deep cleaning every couple months) + just outsource more housekeeping. I don’t want to wake up one day to a clean house (though it would be lovely!) + find out my daughter is heading off to college.
But I digress. Today is about EJ + her amazing milestone of turning ONE. YEAR. OLD. The Humble Christian in me feels truly blessed when I say what a miracle it is to celebrate her birthday today because so many babies don’t make it (every story breaks my heart!). I’m not trying to sound morbid, just acknowledging what an accomplishment it is. And how proud I feel of our little family for getting here.
To all my New Mommy friends
Happy Birthday my Sweet Baby Girl!
Back up all those lovely photos + Have a great weekend!
