One Year Later...



It's official our baby girl is a whole year old. I can still remember like it was yesterday the day she was born....the excitement...the fear.....the unknown....the sounds of her very first cry...the excitement of sharing our new baby girl with our friends and family!! Sophia has been such a blessing to our family.....a blessing we didn't know we needed....but one we now know without a doubt that we couldn't live without.

I am the first to admit that Sophia's impending birthday has been rough for me....I've been unable to talk about it for several weeks without tearing up. This very well might be our last baby....and it breaks my heart that her first year has gone by so fast. I just wish we could re-wind so that I could be sure that I didn't miss a thing....but time marches on...so today I will celebrate.....and try my best to hold back the tears!!

More later....but for now I leave you with Sophia Madeline's 1 year portraits!!

Blessings, Jen

Where, oh *where* has this year gone!? This is just crazy that she is a year old already, Jen. :( Now you've got ME crying.

We are so sad to miss her first birthday tonight. We wish her a very happy celebration though....sealed with a big ol' cyber ((HUG)) from us.

Take care,

Sorry I'm a wee bit late with the birthday wishes for the little one. Looking at her 1 year portraits, I see a bit of Jared in her. I hope she had a great birthday.
