One Year Old... Already?

So Bella turns one year old on September 12. Oh. My. God. Where has the time gone?! I feel like it just flew by. So much has happened, so much that I want to go back to. She is creeping on her own now (holding onto furniture to move around), crawling obviously, even though she hated it at first. She lifts her arms up when she wants up, says mama a lot, trying to say dada, a lot of baby talk. She adores her big brother, which is AMAZING to watch that relationship grow. But man, 1 year already?!

I'm not ready!

I'm not ready to call my baby a toddler. I'm not ready to see her start walking - even though I am very excited about the prospect of it. I am not ready at all.

This means we are closer to preschool. We are closer to more talking. Closer to terrible twos. Closer to potty training (I can't wait to stop buying diapers).


So I look back at the past year and think wow. I made it. And I look ahead at the next year, and think wow, I'm crazy. But, I am excited, and scared. Its been a long time since I've had a toddler in my care 24/7. Eric is now 9 years old! I mean, yea, I've watched my nephews and some friends kids... But, they got to go back. But this one, shes all mine, and she doesn't go back to anyone. I can't wait to see how her personality grows - which we can already see flourish daily. She is a funny one, and she likes the camera. A future model?

sigh, again.

I will be posting photos of her 1st birthday on my Instagram if you care to follow. My user name is jentyree.

Wish me luck!
