Happy First Birthday, Sweet Caroline!

Dear Caroline,

This time last year you arrived into our family. Now, it’s as if you’ve always been with us. Yeah, you may have all the hand-me-downs and the #secondchildproblems, but you are one special little girl. You are sensitive, but opinionated. You are steadfast and meticulous. You keep us busy. I can get lost in your eyes. Most importantly, you have the BEST DARN HAIR I have ever seen on a baby.

No matter how hard I tried to relish in all of the small moments and tried to freeze time, this year flew by about as fast as this video.

Caroline, words cannot express how much we love you. Between you and your big sister, our hearts are just so full. It’s true when they say your heart makes more room for the second baby. It’s like my heart grew exponentially.

Happy birthday, my sweet baby Caroline. Good times never seemed so good.

    That is by far my favorite picture of her! It’s magazine quality for sure. 🙂 Happy belated to your sweet girl. I don’t know if I ever got to officially tell you. Bad friend. I’m sad we missed the party, too. We’ll just have to celebrate some time soon! Xoxo
