I wanted to make a page to commemorate just how much changes in the first year of life. I wanted to show the juxtaposition of a newborn vs a one year old. The changes ALWAYS astound me.

Journaling Reads: You have grown so fast. One moment I am holding you in my arms, a brand new baby - fresh from heaven. You depend on me for everything. Then I blink. You are turning one. You still need me for a lot of things, but you are becoming more independent every day. You are walking, opening cupboards and drawers, going upstairs on your own, entertaining yourself. I know that in a couple of years you will not need me to do many things for you anymore, you will just keep growing up. I celebrate when you celebrate. I cry when you cry. I love to see you learn and grow. It just always takes me by surprise how quickly it happens.



Thanks for looking!
