Almost an entire year ago, our little girl who was expected to join us in May graced us with her beauty a week early in April.
It is so hard to believe my little peanut that joined the world at her tiny little 5 pounds 12 ounces is actually on the verge of being an entire year old. I asked my husband on Sunday – “Where did this past year go?”
It seems like it was all gone in the blink of an eye.
I had had such an amazing time documenting her first year here on Baby’s First Year with all the readers who watched our bumpy journey on Being Pregnant. It has been a priceless experience and at the end of April when Addie joins the toddler club, I am going to be so sad to bid everyone here farewell and move over to Toddler Times with her. Granted I already blog there – mostly about my middle son Benjamin but I am just not ready for Addison to be considered a toddler.
While I sit here and plan her first birthday party I refuse to come to terms with the fact that my last child is no longer a baby and I will never have the baby stage in my house every again. I almost know the feeling empty nesters are going through. I mean of course all the kids are still at home and not going anywhere anytime soon, but it is certainly a new chapter of our lives.
I am convinced to make this my best month ever on Baby’s First Year and go out with a bang… that would only be appropriate right?
I certainly hope all of my amazingly loyal readers who have stuck with me this long will follow me over to Toddler Times and camp out with myself, Addison, and my son Benjamin over there!
