Reminiscing....

As you all know, Chloe just turned one. In so many ways this year has been the longest of my life. I feel like she has been a part of our life forever. It also might feel like such a long year due to my utter exhaustion...you know she still won't sleep through the night- although she is making such great progress. I digress...
I started looking through old photos and videos of those first few weeks with her and when doing that- it seems like only yesterday. I can't help but be a bit emotional about the whole thing. I am so happy that she is growing up and I am having so much fun being her mommy. On the other hand, I feel like despite all the perfect strangers telling me to "enjoy it- It goes by so fast"
I sort of missed it. I mean I didn't really but somedays it feels that way. My favorite thing about looking at all these old pictures is seeing her little personality in them- things I probably missed when she was so young. I mean I didn't know her personality then. But now that I know her, I see other things. I know I am babbling. On with the pictures.

All of these were taken at the hospital- that incredibly long 5 day hospital stay. Now that is a blur to me!

In the posts below you will find some of the first videos of Chloe that we took. I hope you enjoy reminiscing as much as we did!

I wonder if we'll ever stop feeling like it goes too fast. I hear you, and I totally agree.

Ryan and Christie:

two thumbs up for the wonderful job you are both doing as parents. Chloe's face is radiant and happy. You might want to consider offering parenting classes for new first time parent in the future. Happy 1st Birthday, beloved Chloe. I hope to see you soon. Love, Ms. Sabrina
