I can't believe it's been a year since our Calder-bear was born! January 5, 2012 was the most magical day. The Lord has blessed us with such a precious, wonderful child. Like everyone told me, motherhood is the hardest and most rewarding job you will ever do. No words could be any truer.
Well, one things for sure, it sure is FUN to be ONE!!
At first, we weren't going to have a "birthday party" — the mere thought overwhelmed me! Just family and cake and laid-backness, she'll never remember this anyway, I thought.
Then mid-December came and I changed my mind. I starting thinking, Well... she only turns ONE once and we both miss our friends so we're going to have a little party! Of course, I can't do anything half way (which isn't always a good thing I promise!) so it turned into a bigger party. But, we really did have a blast and at the end of the day, I'm so glad we did it.
BUT, our next child
look at all of her adorable friends!
Time for CAKE!
"We promise cake is yummy!"... she's not buying it!
So HAPPY, HAPPY 1st Birthday Calder-bear!! Who knew you could bring so much JOY to our lives? No words can express how much we love you. We thank God every day for your precious life and are beyond blessed to be your parents!
