Marlow is one!

My baby girl is one today! One year old! I can’t believe it. I always find the first birthday to be the most emotional one — the birth still feels so fresh in my mind, the hormones still maybe not completely settled back to normal yet, and a baby who seems to be growing and changing by the day, walking and developing so quickly, those precious baby days slipping by. I’m fighting back tears as I write this — sad that time seems to be flying by, but also so thankful to celebrate such a wonderful, happy year.

I thought I would share a few photos from the little party we had in our kitchen this morning. We made waffles, lit a candle, sang happy birthday and threw confetti all over the place. It was perfect. I think she really knew it was her special day. Thank you for letting me share it with you.

p.s. The confetti came from Knot & Bow, and I have previously blogged about the sweet little party hats here.
