I am now the parent of a one-year-old

Also titled under, “How the hell did this happen?”

Yes, Sadie Faye turned 1 on Saturday. There is no post yet and also no 12 month photos because a) I’m a slacker blogger, as we all know, and b) we were at a wedding the night of her birthday, so I have a little bit of an excuse. (A little one.)

Sadie’s actual party is this coming Saturday. (SO MUCH TO DO!! AHH!) I can’t wait. I am pretty sure I’m more concerned with certain aspects of her party than I ever was for my own wedding.

It’s amazing that she’s a year old. I’m not going to go into specifics for her stats and all, since that’ll come in her official 12 month update post, but I will say that I cried Saturday morning. My little baby isn’t a baby any more!

I can’t believe a year has gone by so fast. Also can’t believe that Dave and I successfully have parented a small child for a year – and we didn’t break her! YAY FOR US!

Here are some pictures from Saturday morning. Sniff, sniff. My baby!!

My birthday girl and her crown ๐Ÿ™‚

Like I said on Facebook Saturday… my tears weren’t due to the fact that the year has gone by so fast, but because I can’t believe that Dave and I are lucky enough to be YOUR parents. You are the best little girl any parent could ask for.


  1. This made me all teary eyed, too. She’s a gorgeous baby. It seems to me like just the other day we were in Seattle for the 3DS launch and you said that you and Dave were going to start trying to have a baby. Amazing how fast time flies! Big hugs to all of you. xo

  2. aw this is just so sweet and love her little crown. i can’t believe a year has gone by already! such a cute little birthday girl, hope her party is just fabulous!
