Where did an entire year go?

I can’t believe T turned one over the holidays! Where did the year go? It’s utterly depressing. It honestly felt like I blinked and it was gone.

M was 17 pounds and 26(ish) inches tall, so petite! Of course I threw him a killer first bday party… Mickey and Baseball themed! Served...

Etiquette and Raising Children
