Birthday Countdown: One Week

In one week from today my little baby girl will be one year old!!  At her nine-month check up our doctor kindly (sarcasm) informed me that she will no longer be a baby, that next time she sees Avery she will be a toddler.  A toddler.  How can this be possible??  While I'm not as emotionally unstable as I thought I'd be (although Matt may tell you otherwise) I'm still having a hard time accepting this.  Thankfully I have lots of party planning to keep me busy. 

We are waiting a few weeks to have her party so that my family can be here and I have to admit, this worked out nicely.  Gives me more time to get everything organized... I might be a bit of a procastinator.  Just ask anyone that routinely recieves birthday cards and gifts 2-3 okay, 4 days late. As I was getting into full-time party planning mode I was looking back through the 10,000 + (haha) pictures I've taken over the past year which of course led to me getting more than a bit sentimental and a little teary-eyed.  So, I thought I'd share them (not the 10,000 plus, just a bunch of my favs)... Wow, I really did take a ton of pictures this past year.


  1. Are you sure? Is it possible you've counted wrong, because, it feels like she shouldn't be more than 5 months old! Holy cow!

    Happy Early Birthday Avery! You are the cutest little girl EVER!!!

  2. I can't believe it either...and the 2nd year goes by even faster :( Boooooo. Thankfully every stage is "the best" stage! LindsAy...take note for when "Paytonellie" comes along!!
