My Birthday Girl

Last Saturday, my sweet baby girl turned one.  Talk about a year moving at warp speed.  Oh my word. It went too quickly.  All that chaos of trying to juggle two kids {emphasis on the word trying} and enjoying all that they have to offer really made time fly.  And, it makes me a little weepy, because that newborn stage, oh that newborn stage, there's just nothing like it.

We celebrated her day with pizza, presents and cupcakes.  I'd say she was a little overwhelmed by everything {especially the cake}, but I'm pretty sure she was thrilled to spend the day being loved on by her family.

Telling him all about her party.




She was not a fan.



After dinner and desert, we went out back for a little birthday photo session.  Unfortunately, I got like zero good shots of her by herself.




Oh, my sweet little Sydney.  I love you so much.  You are such a gift.

And, of course, we had to have a little birthday slideshow to honor my little sweetum's first year.  You can also see it here.

Oh what a year it has been. I am so blessed to have been such a part of it. I can't imagine our lives without her. My sweet, precious baby girl, you are so loved. Looking forward to what year two will bring.
