What a Difference a Year Makes!

A new year usually brings new and fresh starts, but for me, I’m looking for more of what 2011 had to offer!  I hate to brag, but last year was the best year of my life – all thanks to Sweetpea!  I experienced abundant joy in watching Sweetpea grow and experience everything.  It amazes me to think, that this time last year my sweet baby was working on trying to keep her head up, and now, she is working on walking!!!

Just a month ago, Sweetpea turned one.  I couldn’t believe it.  In some ways I feel like we just brought her home from the hospital, like yesterday. In other ways, I feel like she has always been here.  On her birthday {I was timely for once}, I captured another tracing of her hand on her "Grow with Me Handprint Art”.  Tracing the hand of a one year old was even harder than a four month old, so I waited for her to fall asleep to get the print.  Next year, I’m going to take her to work and Xerox a copy of her little hand! But, I got it and you can definitely see that my baby is growing! It makes me sad and happy all at once.

Here’s to hoping that everyone out there has a terrific 2012!
