Sofia Belle is One!!

Pin It
Well, my sweet baby girl is officially one year old. Can you believe it? 
I can't. 
It went too fast. 
Way too fast. 

She went from this (this picture still makes me cry with all the monitors and IV's):
To this:

Amazing right?

We made it through our first year of parenthood and you know what, it has been so much fun!
Our sweet Sofia couldn't turn one without a 'lil bash! Especially not with this ex-party-planner of a mother! Her birthday just happened to fall the day after Easter this year, so we decided to plan an Easter Egg Hunt/Pic-Nic themed birthday party for her and all of her little friends. Yes, she already has friends!

Thanks to my dear sweet friend Kelly over at Cadence, Lyric & Cassidy and her amazing photography skills, we have plenty of photos for your viewing pleasure!

  • She says: mama, dada, baby, bye bye, hi, uht-oh, no, more, dog, Abbe (her Grammy's dog's name)

Happy birthday our darling sweet Sofia, you have no idea the wonders you have brought into our life. You are a true blessing from the Lord and we are so grateful for the gift of your beautiful life. You have made us better people in so many ways. We didn't even know what love really was before you.
Thank you for being our sweet little angel.
Love, Mom & Dad
