It’s hard to believe it’s been a year. It seems like both a lifetime has gone by and like no time has passed at all. I’m sitting here typing this and trying to remember every detail of the last year; the day she was born and how I quite literally wept as I got to meet this baby girl that I had prayed for long before I ever knew she was coming. The early mornings I would stop by before work to cuddle with such a tiny baby because I didn’t want to miss anything. The late night trips to the grocery store when she would come along and I’d get to carry her up and down the aisles. The many many times I would turn to Alexis when someone asked how old she was as I held her so it was completely clear I was the aunt–NOT the mom [even though I *always* know her age].
Today my little baby turns one.
I’m trying really hard not to get emotional, because as much as my heart longs for the days when Zoe was a teeny tiny baby who would fall asleep in my arms I absolutely adore the little girl she is growing up to be. I have to stop there or I’ll be bawling in less than 30 seconds. :/
Alexis and I have been planning Zoe’s first birthday cake smash… probably since she came home from the hospital. Yesterday that planning became a reality. Happy Birthday, Zoe. I love you more than you will ever know. ♥
