So far, I am loving the anticipation of the arrival of Emme’s first birthday. It’s a significant milestone for all of us and I can’t wait to celebrate with family and friends. While my brain is swelling with details of party planning and presents, my heart is overwhelmed by mushiness. My baby is growing up and there’s nothing I can do to stop it! I am already making the most of the final month before the word ‘year’ is forever attached to her age.
Tonight I took Emerson to the park in hopes of getting one amazing photo to use on birthday invites. I quickly became frustrated when several factors derailed my plan, but on the bright side Emerson enjoyed the thrill of a swing set for the first time! We got some fun 11 month photos and loved every minute of this glorious August weather.
