Too Fast

As this little one is about to turn one.... 5 more days.... I just have to say things are going too fast. Tula's first year has passed in the blink of an eye. It is hard to believe just a year ago I was preparing to welcome a new little bundle of joy and now we are busy getting ready to celebrate her big birthday!

When I see Ivy in the big sister role it makes my heart melt! Most days she relishes in the role- let me help you, can I show Tula how to play with this toy, I hope Tula has a good day- I sure do miss her- but some days it is hard to be big! Today I am reminding her of all the times we have crowded around with family and friends to celebrate her- but today is going to be a celebration for the little sister. I want Ivy to know-even in the midst of special days for Tula- that we love her, are proud of her, and are celebrating Tula the same way we have done (and always will do) for her!

You know you have a big kid when you go to snap a picture and this is the pose you get! Life is going too fast- and before I know it Tula will be standing right beside Ivy- hands on hips, head cocked to the side, and looking too big for her own good.

Even though I can't push pause I can slow down enough to enjoy these sweet girls each and every day! That is my commitment to my little princesses!


  1. Can't believe Tula is almost 1! It goes so quickly..I just want to freeze time. You'e girls are so sweet and make me want my next one to be a girl! Don't get me wrong..I LOVE having Kason but I need some more pink in my life!! :)

  2. You're such a good mommy-love ALL my girls so much!

  3. In Tula's picture I love her big boo-tay, her knee roll, and her little tiny foot!

    In Ivy's picture I love her shoes, her hair, and her big-girl smirk!

    I HATE that we missed her very first birthday. I hope it was a great party in the park :) Pictures soon!!

  4. hahaha love those pics! Love those girls.


Thanks for your encouragement as I travel through this season of life called mommyhood!
