One year ago today...

Caroline entered our lives.

She came 10 days past her expected due date and by way of c-section, which was the farthest thing from our desired "birth plan". I remember the fear and disappointment I felt on that day. However, what we got in return was the most precious gift, and I would do it all over again in a heartbeat.

I never could have imagined the joy, laughter and indescribable love that this little, baby girl has brought into our home.

She is our happiness and our light; our perfect daughter.

We love you forever sweet Caroline.

HAPPY 1st BIRTHDAY!

This is scary because it means that soon I will have a 1 year old. Can we please make our little babies stop growing up on us?

As usual C is adorable in those pictures. She seems to have such a cute personality. Happy birthday to C!
