How Do You Measure A Year?


My baby turns 1 year today. My how time flies. I have been amazed by many things this year as I've watched this blessing from God grow right before my eyes. But I think the thing I've been most amazed by is just how much more I am capable of loving. Not only loving Claire, but also loving my husband, family, friends, and just people in general. Who knew one little baby could do so much?

We enjoyed the traditional smashing-of-cake-into-baby's-face extravaganza last weekend while Michael's family was in town. Here are some of my favorite pics:






Happy Birthday, Pumpkin! We love you!

By the time she's two, we'll have to teach her about M&M's, the chocolate that melts in your mouth, not in your...hands?
