Dear Baby | The First Year

Dear baby, You are one. You are 365 days of love and change and growth. You are 12 months of gratitude. Your bassinet is still sitting next to my bed. Did you know that?

It’s nature’s way of proving the passing of time creates a new beginning — one that always seems to come too soon, yet is so remarkably needed. I needed that reminder this year. Time never feels more fleeting than it does as a new mother. Somehow my baby’s newness is beginning to feel more routine now, and he’s more of a boy than a newborn….. Read more
