too fast. way too fast.

Brielle is ONE.

One year ago, she was born. Remember all THESE pictures? you know, the ones I JUST posted, already a year ago? I cannot believe it.

I don't even know what to say. I've never been this sad about a birthday. It might have something to do with the fact that we might be done having kids. We don't know yet. But we really love this. We feel like this might be right. So this is my BABY, possibly forever my baby. But she's not a baby anymore.

It's funny, too, because this morning when we went to wake her up by singing "happy birthday," Lillian looked at me and said, "but Mom! She doesn't LOOK one!" I guess no matter how many conversations we have about growing a tiny bit every day, she still doesn't get it. :) But the funny thing is, when I saw Brielle this morning, MY first thought was "oh my goodness. she looks older." So I guess I don't get it either. :)

I have lots to post about. a camping trip, a wedding trip, and a few little things.

But today I just want to focus my thoughts on something "bigger."

Happy Birthday, Miss B. You are so loved.
