Abigail Grace is one! What a year we’ve had together. Her favorite activities include trying to play with anything she isn’t supposed to, learning to walk, and eating (seriously, when we put food in front of her, her arm shoots out like something from the Hungry, Hungry Hippos game). She’s not a fan of grass, but we’re working on that. We love watching her grow, and she’s an excellent travel companion. In her first year, she’s been on 3 transatlantic flights (and a total of 9 plane rides) and she’s visited 7 countries.
It’s still kind of amazing to me that I have a daughter and she is already a year old. I wanted to be a mom for a very long time, and it’s everything I imagined it would be and more. Abby brings so much joy (and exhaustion) to us and while I know it’s not everyone’s favorite, I really loved the newborn and infant stages. This toddler thing has me a bit nervous, but I figure if she really starts to act up we’ll just ship her off to my mom’s house for a few weeks at a time.
A year in pictures!
Still kind of in denial that I was THAT BIG at the end. Also, it’s not talked about enough but not being allowed to eat all day while you are in labor is cruel. An icee is not food.
Not so much into sitting still for some birthday pictures this morning, but oh well. Happy birthday, baby girl!
