Today is my baby’s birthday. My youngest and last baby is one this very day.
One year ago, this was me in the morning.
And this was me by late that evening.
The newest addition had to meet her best friends as soon as possible. When we had #4, they were 3 years, 2 years, and one year old!
She was (and is!) so beautiful. Due to her being a month early, she was our smallest baby. Still can’t believe she could fit on that tiny chair!
She was our toughest newborn and has been our best-y-best-best baby. God knew not to give her to me first – phew, it would have been a shocker to have these boys AFTER her! Easygoing, content, happy as can be, and chubby in all the right places – that’s our bright blue-eyed baby girl.
She was quickly adored.
How is she one already?
I am frequently told I would be unrecognizable without her attached to me. Got to keep those hands free for the other ones!
I have caught glimpses of why sisters are so special. (I only have brothers!)
I have realized there is no such thing as the perfect picture with four children four years and under.
I have nearly mastered the art of estate sale-ing, grocery shopping, zoo-ing, museum-ing, and flea marketing with four children.
I have never felt more capable, more grateful, more aware of our huge responsibility, more fulfilled, and more humbled by all the areas in which I need to improve.
It’s been quite the party.
I love design. I love beautiful things. I love transformations.
Most of all, I love my family.
See you back here next week for some to-die-for before and afters plus some Thanksgiving table ideas. Have a happy weekend!
