August 15, 2010 at 12:11am. One year ago...that is when my little Violet entered this world and changed my life forever. Giving birth and becoming a first-time-mom is such a whirlwind! The sequence of events can really be quite a blur! But I remember that moment…8/15/10 at 12:11am…I remember it as clear as day. The moment they set her on my stomach and when I heard her cry for the first time. The moment they put her in my arms, we looked at each other, and I said “hi.” There are no words to describe that feeling.
I never knew it was possible to love someone SO MUCH. I was also totally unprepared for how this little person changes your entire outlook on life. She makes me want to be a better person every day. I want to solve all the world’s problems so she can grow up in a better place. One thing is for sure…no matter what life throws at me, all I have to do is look at her, and I am reminded of how blessed I am.
I have to say, this past year has flown by. I hate that motherhood seems to press the fast forward button on life. It seems like, one minute, she was a 7 pound newborn, and the next minute she’s rolling, crawling, standing and now walking! While each stage passes way too quickly, every new chapter in her life is SO incredibly exciting and fun.
Today, my Little Tiny turns ONE YEAR OLD. It’s been the fastest and most amazing 12 months of my life. Of course, I would like to take this opportunity to share some Tiny photos, old and new!! I had a REALLY difficult time narrowing these down, so get comfy...there are quite a few. :)
Happy first birthday to my Little Tiny Violet Eve!!
