happy birthday little one
it is so hard to believe that a year ago today Miss A was born. the first day was filled with sleeplessness and joy but we were ready to take on the world. each minute and hour was fresh in our mind we could recall how many diapers she had used and how often she ate even a week later.
some how we made it through the sleepless nights. we no longer keep track of how many diapers she uses but instead try to remember to write down the milestones as she reaches them. once so helpless she is now already showing us how independent she thinks she is. for her birthday she recieved a little push bike and she has already learned to get both on and off all by herself.
it is hard for me to immagine what she will be doing next year.
along with planning for her party these past weeks we have found ourselves in the middle of buying a house. i might start by saying that we were only just getting into the market when this all took place. we met with the realtor for the first time on a thursday and by tuesday we were not only looking at our first house but putting an offer down. by wednesday afternoon we had our offer accepted and friday we had the inspection. so now we are just going down the list of to-dos. it is hard to believe that by the end of this month we will be moving into our new place. i am happy to say that this new place includes a sewing room with built in shelving and sewing table. it has true 1950's charm and has not changed much since the owner moved in the early 60's. so from now until the end of the month we have our hands full but i am hoping to be a bit better about bloging and working on projects.
as for today we are enjoying a quite day at home with the birthday girl.
