The Night Before 1...
When Stella turned 1, I felt like I had earned a badge of honor. A huge relief that we survived the first year of parenthood. We celebrated, ate cake, and breathed a sigh of relief.
But as I sit here the night before Chloé turns 1... I don't share the same sentiments. This year went entirely too fast and I feel like we just brought her home from the hospital! As I've been putting together her 1 year slideshow, I realized I want to keep her a baby.... not have another toddler. Of course I'm excited for what is ahead, but I have just had so much fun with the baby phase this go around. I appreciated its simplicity so much now that I have a threenager ;) BABIES ARE MY JAM. They LOVE you. Can't talk back. End of story :)
Chloé Grace. You have been a delight since Day 1. You do have the shriekiest cry I have EVER heard but you cry VERY rarely. You are a snuggler. You love to be held and hugged and kissed. You are obsessed with your big sister. You ADORE your Daddy and waddle over to him with a BIG GRIN on your face when he walks in from work. You are chill. Content. Happy. Calm. Sweet. ALL the good adjectives and honestly if we have another baby someday... I am not sure I can handle anything less! You have been a DREAM.
We are the luckiest to be your parents. We pray for you and your sister every single night. For protection. Purity. Health. And a BRIGHT Future. But most importantly, that you will come to know Jesus personally at a young age.
We are so thankful to have 2 sweet precious girls to call our own and we look forward to the year ahead! I am so grateful I will have you home with me all next year before we put you in Mother's Day Out.... Not quite ready to let you go yet. You will always be my baby girl.
We ADORE you.
