Happy 1st Birthday Avery-Harper

On this day a year ago at 11:37am my life changed forever and for the better! Avery-Harper came into my crazy world and rocked it! It was the scariest, happiest most imperfectly perfect day of my life! I couldn't imagine a more exquisite being. She has her father's sensitive skin and kind nature, coupled with my stubbornness and sass! SHE'S PERFECT!

Her first year went by extremely fast but it was also extremely beautiful! So to all my friends that are still trying, please don't give up! The light at the end of the tunnel shines brighter than your wildest dreams.

Our road to get to parenthood was beyond hard. However, I'd do it 100 times over just to get to her! Happy Birthday My Miracle Child. Always know that you were desperately wanted and created by love ❤️❤️

*Avery-Harper is ALLERGIC TO EGGS! (she'll probably grow out of it later)

* All common sense escapes you when your baby's face swells to the size of your ass!

* I can still run very fast, especially when it comes to my child.

* My husband can get from Frisco to Dallas in less than 20 minutes when he is worried about his girls!

After Benadryl and a $120 doctor visit, Avery-Harper was totally fine!

Valentine's Day

We had a Great Valentine's Day with our baby girl! We took her to our Thai restaurant where we had our first Valentine's Day date 8 years ago. We go every year and it's always special b/c we know the staff and they allow Tommy to do extra special things for me every year. He always brings flowers and candy (sometimes a special bottle of wine) and they set it up with candles before we arrive at our same table every year.

This year was extra special because we took the baby. The staff got to meet her and it was such a special evening reflecting on our blessings.

However the SWEETEST part was my husband Tommy got the baby her own bouquet of flowers! OMG the cutest thing you've ever seen!! It was very tiny and made especially for her small frame. She also got a card and bear. It just made my heart melts in a puddle. BEST HUSBAND AND FATHER EVER.

After dinner we dropped the baby off at Granny Annie's for a couple of hours. We then went to a wine cellar and just enjoyed some adult time. We had a wonderful evening!
