Birthday Girl

August 5th, 2009

Our girl turned one-year-old yesterday.  It was a bittersweet day for me.  On the bitter side, my baby is not much of a baby anymore.  I knew that day would come, but I didn’t know just how quickly.  Everyone told me it would, but I thought I’d surely figure out how to stop time by then.  On the sweet side, I have a little girl now.  She has such a sweet, laid-back, determined,  intuitive, and curious personality.  I love who she is becoming.  I feel so proud to call her mine.

For her birthday I wanted to create something special for her.  Though she won’t be able to appreciate it for a little while to come, I hope it reminds her of how special she is to us and so many around her.
So here is our birthday present to her. I spent many months getting it all together. I hope she’ll love it one day ~
