My little lady is a few short weeks away from her first birthday. Thinking of that makes me really sad but really happy all at the same time. This past year has gone by so terrible fast I feel like I didn't have time to revel in the newness of her life as much as I had wished too. Being sick for the first three months of her life definitely put a strain on me enjoying her in the beginning. Trying to think back to the days of a cuddly sweet newborn are hard to remember, already. Don't get me wrong, I do love her new big girl skills and her cute personality that shines so bright but I feel sad about how quickly it has all come. When I was pregnant I was given some great advice by an old customer. They said to me, "always be in the present, don't hope for the future or the past, just enjoy what is happen right now." I need to keep reminding myself of this wise advice or I might find myself next year wondering how I missed everything again.
