Say Yes To The Dress

I feel like my posts for the next month will be littered with my emotional self talking about how Ellie is going to be a year next month. Be prepared for my sappiness.

Saturday I went wedding dress shopping with my soul sister.

I am so frickin excited to say she found THE dress.
Not the dress.
THE dress.
It is amazing. It's perfect!
She is gonna look gorgeous on her wedding day!
I am so excited!
Now I have to find something else to do on Saturdays.
Her and her man came over later that night for some honey crisp apple crisp and play some games.
Per the usual we had so much fun!
Mad Gab can get pretty intense!

Ok here is the sap
I really can't believe that in ONE month my baby will be ONE.
How did that happen?
Really, how?
Didn't I just bring a sweet squishy baby home from the hospital?

In just 11 short months
how can this

grow into this?
It's amazing.
When I say I miss my little baby everyone just says it's time to have another one. But it won't be the same. It won't be Ellie. I won't be able to spend the one on one time with them like I did with Ellie. And it won't be just Ellie and I. I would have another baby to focus on..and a toddler to chase around. I just know that I will never get these moments back. She will never again be as little as she was today. You just never know when the "last time" of something will be. The last time they fall asleep on your chest. The last time you get to snuggle up next to them and take a nap. The last time you will nurse them. The last time they they will have that newborn smell. It blows my mind how fast time goes. I feel like I'm going to blink and she will be in high school. And that terrifies me!
But I am SO looking forward to everything that is to come.
It amazes me just how much I love this little girl.

All you mommas out there:
Did you have a hard time when your little one turned 1?

It is so hard...or maybe bittersweet is a better way for me to describe how I felt. I cried...not because I missed those early months because I felt ssoo incredibly lucky to have had such a wonderful year. It is simply crazy how quickly they grow!!!

Everyone has been pressuring me to have another baby too, but you know, I feel the same way as you. There is just something really special about this time with my daughter, and I'm not ready to let go of that yet :) It is hard when your little baby turns 1, I think I cried on Emma's first birthday :) Just hang in there, Mom. The things that are to come are just as special! :)

P.S. I left something for you over at my blog
