Where has the year gone? | Avery Jade turns one 38


I am in utter disbelief that one year; 365 days; 52 weeks has gone by. It literally seems like just yesterday that I was a ball of nerves walking into the birth center at the Rex Women’s Center for my scheduled C-Section after a long anticipated and very complicated pregnancy. I was happy, sad, excited, scared, and every emotion in between; and I had no idea that on that day, there in front of the hospital, the next several hours would change my life forever.

Skip to 12:02pm and there she was. THE most perfect thing I had ever laid eyes on. The only thing I could thing was “How is it possible to love a person THIS much, and not even know them?”.  I still haven’t figured out the answer to that question.

Today with teary eyes (but a full heart) I am celebrating her first birthday! We celebrated earlier in the month with a cake smash session! Boy, did this girl LOVE smashing some cake. avery blog1My insanely talented friend Michelle of Cake Rush made this special little smasher for my princess. The sweet tutu bloomers came from one of my favorite Etsy sellers Couture Flower and the coordinating headband from ShonnasBOWtique.avery blog2After we had been sufficiently covered in buttercream, there was only one thing left to do. TAKE A BATH! This little girl LOVES a bath (and a good thing too, because there was no possibility of her getting in my car covered in icing!)Avery blog3 avery blog4
