Happy Birthday, Stellabella

Stella turns one today.

When she was still a fresh baby, everyone said, "it goes so fast. You'll blink your eyes and she'll have grown up." 

I didn't believe it then. But I do now. For I have no idea how we got from here:


To here:


I blinked my eyes, and she is big.

What I do know is that on this day last year, I fell in love for the second time. 


And I told our girl, "I'm so happy you've come."

Since then, my heart has grown three sizes.


And I'm still so happy she has come.

Happy birthday, baby.
