Happy FIRST Birthday Abigail Remi

With Christmas a few weeks ago and now celebrating Abigail’s first Birthday, I have been a little MIA between planning for her party and just simply soaking up every single moment with her!  But I promise there are MANY posts to come within the next week, including all the details for the FairyONEderland first Birthday theme, family photos and of course her cake smash!

But for now I owe my baby girl the BIGGEST of Birthday wishes!!!

Well, today our baby girl celebrates her very first birthday!  365 days ago your Daddy and I were on the way to the hospital because I thought my water broke and was pretty sure I was feeling consistent contractions!  Turns out, I was right!  I was 5cm dilated and having you sometime today (January 11th, 2017).

Delivery

365 days ago we began our breastfeeding journey, I made it my goal to nurse you and give you Mommy’s milk for as long as possible!  Although you weaned yourself from nursing around 4 months old, I continued to exclusively pump making sure you still got my milk.

In one short year you have accomplished SO much:

  • You said your FIRST word (Dada) and now know: Mama, bye-bye, ohh, uh-oh and Nana (for Savannah)
  • You have 11 teeth
  • You took your first steps
  • You first started eating solids, leading up to you eating EVERYTHING!
  • You took your first vacation to the Bahamas

 

……. Just to name a FEW things!

You have taught me so much this past year about who I am as a person, a wife to your Daddy but most importantly the Mother I want to be to you!  I have learned life is all about living in the moment and being present.  Although your Mommy is passionate about photographing your life every step of the way, I make it a point to live in the moment and appreciate the fact that I am able to enjoy taking you to places like Disney, the Bahamas and spend every single weekend with you.  I refuse to watch you grow up behind a camera but I am determined to document your milestones through photography.

Your Mommy and Daddy love you more than you will ever know and we are SO blessed to be your parents!  We can’t wait to watch you continue to learn, grow and love!

Love: Mommy, Daddy and Savannah
