One - 365 days - Baby Girl

Baby girl
For the sake of full disclosure,  I'm actually writing this first birthday a year late.  Being the Momma of two littles is nothing short of EXHAUSTING and some how I forgot to post my sweet girl's first birthday letter, so I'm doing it now!

How'd we get here so quick?  Just yesterday you were days old and finally coming home from the NICU and now your 1!  That went much faster than I wanted.  With your barely there hair and 6 little teeth you are the my reason for being most days, you and your brother.  I hardly remember life before you and for Bubba it's like you've always been here.

You're walking and jabbering, not really talking just yet, and getting into EVERYTHING but that not of that will change from here on out.  You LOVE food, LOVE IT and sometimes can out eat the boys, even your biggest brother!  I wonder if you'll always be like that or if eventually you'll become a picky eater.  You'll play for hours by yourself at the little kitchen we recently bought and it's the cutest thing, EVER! Bubba would prefer you play with him but sometimes a girl just needs alone time.

It was the fastest year and I'm sure the rest will go just as quickly, so I'll try not to blink.  Know that no matter what Momma & Daddy love you always.  Make the next year be as memorable as this first year.

Forever and Always.

Seriously!  2 months since I last touched this page and while I know it's because life is crazy, although it's slowed down some, it still makes me sad.  This is my place to decompress a little. So I'm vowing to get back to it.  NaBloPoMo (National Blog Post Month) started on the 1st, I'm behind which is really the story of my life anymore, so I'm going to start today.  Last year I did pretty well getting one post a day and this is a big month for the Swiftly Growing house, Baby Girl turns 1 next week!  That means I have a least a weeks worth or posts and not to mention I still need to get her 10/11 months posts up...sigh, I really am overwhelmed by life!  I'm vowing to take the next two months 1 day at a time, otherwise I may completly have a melt down, and just in case the wine rack is stocked!

So I'm back, hopefully full time at least for this month. And I'm hoping at least 2-3 times a week after that but hey I'm a Momma and Wife and a million other things and sometimes life just gets crazy.

Happy Thursday, ya'll! Oh here's a little cuteness!
