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:
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.
