one year ago

this weekend, one year ago, we discovered that our little family was about to grow by one [oh so precious] squish. I can remember all the crazy emotions waiting to find out if it [she] was real. I remember being so ridiculously excited and so unbelievably nervous that I didn't know whether to laugh or cry. She was the greatest surprise we could have ever dreamed up.

Little bean, this was your first thanksgiving out in the world, but i'll always think of last thanksgiving [2011] as your first. There's no way I'll ever forget holding you as our little secret on a weekend made to celebrate & give thanks. Also a weekend where we would see nearly every family member and friend we have. We couldn't be more grateful for you, our itty bitty bundle of joy! Thank you for making us parents & for growing our hearts so big, little one. I cannot believe it has already been a year - a year since our lives began to change in the most wonderful way.


  1. I saw you that weekend & you didn't tell!

    I remember you carrying around a bottle of water & thinking that was so strange!

    Super thankful for your little surprise!

  2. Are those the little jammies we got for her??? I cannot believe she is already wearing them! Can't wait to see you guys again at Christmas -- been forever!


i am thrilled to see your comments. please give me some more to be thrilled about...
