Days are Long but Years are Short

I read this quote on the interwebs a while ago and can’t tell you how appropriately it applies to having a child. Nothing in life has been more fun and transforming as having a baby. Today my little girl, who used to jump around in my belly, is now 11-months old. Although we are still waiting on her teeth to show up, she already has a big personality. Where did the time fly? Can I still call myself a “new” mom?

Happy Birthday my baby. Next month you will be a whole year old and I don’t know how it happened. As long as you still snuggle and nuzzle, mama will be fine.
