A Leap Day Celebration..on March 1st

I can’t believe today has been a YEAR.

A WHOLE year!

One year ago today I found out that I was PREGNANT!

It was actually leap day last year, a day I will never forget…EVER. But since it only happens every four years, we will have to celebrate March 1st instead. 🙂

Shortly there after we announced it to our families. Here is how we told Craig’s family:
preg anno

(eek…I really just had run. pardon the scary picture)

Hard to believe that just a few months ago I looked like this:

8 months pregnant, getting close to being ‘ready to have my girl out!’

And then the BEST day of my life happened, November 5th, 2012.

My little girl, the light of my life, entered the world. ❤

Forever she will be my little girl.

Even when she prefers to cry rather than nap, or when she refuses to take a bottle. One thing is for sure…that little girl has stolen my heart. EVERY ounce of it.

Oh, these two together. Be still my heart.

It’s totally true, whenever you see your husband (or significant other) holding your child you fall SO MUCH MORE in love with them. You wouldn’t even believe it. The best part is when I see G smile whenever she sees her Daddy. OH my gosh…it melts my heart. Sometimes I even tear up…I blame it on the hormones. 😉 I mean breastfeeding still makes you hormonal, right?! I’m going with it!

Hard to believe in a few short days she will be 4 months old. Yes, FOUR.

I’m soaking up EVERY single second of our time together.

The other day I thought of her leaving the house & going to college. I cried. Like had a full on melt down. No more thinking about that!

I always tell her to slow down, no need to grow so quick. But I’m not going to miss a minute of it. We have SO many memories to make & I’m so lucky and blessed to have her in my life. God knew I was supposed to have a girl…and I got my girl. ❤
