Bravely Belle turns ONE!
How is my little girl already a year old?! Last night, I was so emotional at the thought of her turning one. They were tears of both sadness and joy. I am sad that my Belle will never be a newborn again and heartbroken that these last 12 months have flown by way too fast. But when I think about what this child will grow up to become and what she will do for others and the Lord, my heart is instantly filled with so much delight. Josh and I shared a great deal of laughs as we looked through the many photos and videos that we have taken of her this past year and reminisced about the night she came into our world. (You can read her birth story from Josh’s point of view, as well as my point of view.)
We are completely and utterly in-love with you! We are excited for many more years with our little girl and our hearts can’t wait for the countless laughs and memories you will bring to us over the years.
Happy Birthday Beauty!!!
