Dear Molly,

I can't believe 12 months have passed since that long, exhausting, wonderful day that you came into this world.

It's been the fastest, craziest, most hectic year of my life.

I wish I could rewind and do it all over again. Soak it all up a little more. Cherish every tiny millisecond. Redo all those cuddles, re-live that first smile and those first words. 

Even though I would love to re-live the first year of your life over and over, I am so excited to see how you will grow and learn and transform in the second year of your life.

You are already so full of life and attitude. I can only image how much personality you will have in a year.

I love you, Molly. I love you more every day. I am excited to see you grow. 

Happy Birthday, baby.

Sincerely, Mom


Dear Brooklyn,

Today I was looking through my camera and came across a pleasant surprise: your "selfie" pictures.

 I am quite proud. You even got a cute shot of your pajamas and toes. 

I'm thinking professional photography might be in your future.... or not.

Either way, I hope to always find pictures of your beautiful on my camera.

Sincerely, Mom
