Josephine is eleven months old today. I get all misty thinking about how in one month she will be a year old. I don't know what it is about reaching that one year mark that makes me so emotional. It's a hard feeling to put a label on or to explain. As the months pass, these updates get harder and harder to put together. The more she grows and changes the more difficult it is to sum her up in one little post. There is just so much I love about this little girl of mine. She gives her mama the best hugs ever. The best! And she loves being held. It's funny how the more mobile and independent she gets, the more she seems to want to be held and cuddled. There's been a lot of babywearing lately. I hope she grows to be a big snuggle bug. Our world could stand to be a little more cuddly, right?
We have had so many people comment on how happy of a baby she is. I just beam when I hear this. It's so easy to get bogged down in the fussy days. She has been cutting a tooth for what seems like weeks now and, gosh, the whining can be grating. But hearing that comment from others is a gentle reminder that she really is such a joy. And, really, she is. Stay silly, stay sweet, stay curious, stay you, my little one!


  1. I a little choked up reading this. It seems like just yesterday when we visited you guys at the hospital, and I heard her little squeaks for the first time. She is so beautiful and so full of life and personality. It's exciting to see all of these posts, so keep them coming! Love you guys
