They all warned us....

...that it would go by terribly fast. That we would look back on those early days fondly and forget about all of the fear and uncertainty that came with being new parents. That we would marvel at how tiny those little fingers once were. That we would question how we ever lived without her.

They were right. I can't help but wish that it would all slow down just a little.

And here we are on the eve of her second birthday, weepy at the sight of these pictures... not from sadness, but gratitude. This child gave us the gift of parenthood on the day she was born and we are so, so thankful. The love that has come along with it opened up our lives in ways we never could have imagined . Even though this birthday marks her time as a "big girl," she'll always be our precious baby.
