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.
