Getting ready...

On Friday my sweet baby turns 1.  I've been flooded with emotions.  I am so thankful to be blessed with this sweet cuddly baby.  This is one of my favorite ages b/c they learn so much so fast.  Right now she's changing daily, and it's so fun to watch.  BUT when I think about how fast this year went by, it's like a blur!  I barely remember her as a tiny baby.  That part makes me kinda sad. lol
Saturday we'll have family over for a small party.  I've been getting ready and now I'm getting stressed b/c I feel like I still have so much to do. lol

We're having a bee themed party.  I made her a tutu this weekend. :)

emotional basket case

Yes, that's me, an emotional mess!  In 2 weeks my sweet little cuddly baby will be 1.  I'm in TEARS as I write this.  Seems silly I know, but this year has FLOWN by.  It's SO bittersweet.  I miss the sweet newborn stage, the newness of everything.  But I'm super thankful for a healthy 1 year old (well almost 1).

8/2011 the night before meeting my 2nd daughter

 Waiting in recovery to meet her was torture, but when hubby finally placed her in my arms, it was love at first sight!  

 Sisters meeting for the first time.  I melt into a giant puddle of a mess whenever I think back to this day and this moment.  I was so amazed at the instant love these 2 girls had for each other. 

I'm so thankful the Lord chose to bless me with these 2 sweet girls.  Looking forward to celebrating this sweet birthday with family!

Baby girl was dedicated at our church last night.  She looked so pretty in her dress :)

The pastor talking.  I didn't want to post a full shot w/ daddy and sissy in the pic b/c there are other people in there that I'm not sure would approve of being in my blog. lol

 I made her a pretty new bow to go w/ her new dress

 Little doll baby

 It's amazing, anytime we take a picture with them, they never smile at the same time. lol

 My beautiful girls!
