last year

October 27, 2009

october 26th will always stick with me. it was my due date. the day i expected to have or already be holding my first baby. it didn’t happen that way, but after anticipating something for 9 months it’s just a day i’ll always have etched in my mind regardless. this day last year i was 2cm dilated and hopeful. wish i would have realized how sweet it was to have my little one snug and safe in my belly. now she is 5 days away from her first birthday. time to start measuring her life in years instead of months (though i’ll probably be one of those moms who says her age in months until she’s 2 – because c’mon – 16 months is way different than 1 year). i’m excited and sad. i’m loving the little human being she is becoming, but missing the old days. probably because it doesn’t seem right that her tiny life is going so fast. 5

october 26, 2008. it’s impossible to imagine my belly being this big now. which is crazy, because at the time, i couldn’t imagine it being back to normal ever. p.s. thats the face of a lady who thought she was going into labor any second.

    ughhh. This literally makes ME cry and it’s not even my kid. Maybe cuz’ we are approaching Hudson’s first as well.

    It really is strange looking back at pregnancy thinking “how did that even happen?” or “How in the world was this beautiful human being INSIDE of me?” Being someone’s Mommy is truly the most amazing experience! You are so in love and want so much for your kid- but at the same time- watching them grow just breaks you heart! I finally understand my parents always telling me “not to grow up too fast.”

    Congrats on getting through your first year as Harper’s Mommy. Even though it’s totally sad these milestone’s come so fast- it’s also wonderful to know that everything she is- is because of YOU (and your hubs of course!)

    Please wish her a Happy (early) Birthday from her internet friends/fans! :)

    PEE ESSSSS: I cannot WAIT to see pics for her birthday soiree!

    It’s hard to believe an entire year has gone by, and she’s standing. Holy crap! Walking is out of the question – do you know how fast you have to be to keep up with them! She and the puppies will be dashing all around the house – from the kitchen to the living room – and back. She’ll be chasing them and they’ll be chasing her. We can hear the laughing and barking now!!!!

    From the look on her face, I would bet she was looking at her Daddy. She is just the cutest little person ever.

    See you on Saturday for the celebration.

    Love, Uncle Bobby & Auntie

Aren’t we lucky!?…sorry, I couldn’t resist that last one:)Your decorations sound much cuter than any mass produced stuff at Target, and they were made with love.Something a mega-chain store can never duplicate. xoxo ~bobbi
