It’s not possible.

It’s not possible that I have a one year old.

It seems like yesterday I was cradling this tiny sweet baby in my arms watching him sleep the hours away.

Writing about him causes me to cry… every time. So forgive me as I struggle to form a sentence through my happy tears.

It’s not possible that I’m a mother. Being a mama to this angel baby for the last year has been the greatest gift. It is without hesitation that both Billy and I feel this to have been the best year of our lives so far.

It’s not possible that I have the best baby in the entire world. With all of the struggles there have been rewards ten fold. Brady is sweet, funny, adorable, endearing, challenging, stubborn, lovely, affectionate, smart, sensitive and inspiring.

It’s just not possible that it went this fast… that he’s already much more of a toddler and less of a baby.

Celebrating this occasion came in two parts for us. Observing his first year and congratulating ourselves for keeping him alive (if you’re a parent you understand this).  We gathered with a nice group of close family and friends and toasted to 12 months! Novelty Hill winery was the perfect spot for our happy hour themed bash. And that CAKE?! Yep, that’s the handiwork of the infamous Judy Tallant of Tallant House. It tasted even more magical than it looked if you can believe it.
