She's one. Today. I cannot believe it. Seriously, where did the time go? As fast as it has sped by, I am grateful for every moment. The good and the hard. She has grown so much, but at the same time, I have grown even more. Adlyn has inspired me to be better in so many ways. The way she wraps her arms around my neck, even while we're sleeping, makes me want to love more fiercely. The way she reaches out to people (even strangers) and shows them love with smiles, pats of her little hands and even cuddles makes me want to be a better friend. The way she glows when she sees her brothers come home from school makes me want to spend more quality time with the people I love. The way she absolutely adores her daddy makes me love him more. I am so grateful to be her mama. Truly, truly blessed.
All this birthday milestone stuff has had me looking over photos of the past year, and these photos caught my eye:
I realized that I hadn't scrapped them yet, and they were perfect for an assignment from Pretty Little Studio to feature the word flags (one of my favorite PLS embellishments). You can read more about them here.
This is Adlyn in her first Easter dress. She was awfully wiggly, so I had a hard time getting photos, but I think the blurry pictures tell the story well.
It's funny - I was just telling a friend at CHA that I was "so over" the yellow and gray trend. Huh, looks like I'm not, really ;).
Thanks for stopping by today. For those of you looking for sneak peeks of Adlyn's birthday party, see my IG feed. Her party isn't until next weekend, so you've got a week until I blog it all. I'll be sharing photos of the DIY on IG fairly regularly, though! Have a good one! Tessa
