I can’t even really put into words what it means to me that Baby Peony is just a few weeks away from her first birthday. And I’m hardly ever speechless (ahem), so my almost-silence is really saying something.
She’s just my little Peony. Seriously, the sweetest little girl (who’s showing signs of turning into a darling little devil as she becomes more mobile, but still). There have been no moments over the past 11+ months that I haven’t enjoyed Peony. Even when she’s fussed, which has been barely, I’ve savored every second (and I don’t even think that’s possible, or if it is, it’s just annoying, but it’s true).
I’ve snapped a photo of her on the same day each month over the past year, and though she’s changed before my eyes, it’s been hard to see until I look at her all at once, in living color, like in these pictures.
Take a look:
