it's a birthday filled week: guest blogger allie!

it is friday! which mean that tomorrow is stella's big beach birthday bash and i can't wait to share photos with you guys! i am not going too crazy and trying to keep it simple but memorable-so stay tuned.
i am feeling so blessed by the amazing blog friends that stella and i have made this last year! today allie from it's a wonderful life is helping us out with a guest post. her little henry is such a stud and stella is totally calling husband dubs on him. i love love love allie, she is such a sweetheart and good mom! i can't wait to hear what she has to say!


I was so excited when Melissa asked me to write a post in honor of Stella's big O-N-E.I have loved watching Stella grow and following the adventures of Melissa and her adorable family (have you all seen her engagement photos? I told you, adorable!). Ummm, ok. Stella is going to be one? Where has time even gone? Henry and I had the opportunity to meet Stella last summer and our babies just sat on the blanket, unable to even crawl at the time. Now I'm watching videos of Stella making soup and walking wobbly towards her daddy and it's blowing my mind. 

Let me just say: ONE IS FUN. So much fun. I'm loving watching my little Henry turn into an individual. Already I see his personality developing, such a strong willed and determined boy with a love for animals and the occasional snuggle. We can communicate some and I'm having a complete blast actually knowing what he wants instead of frantically handing him everything off of the counter as he screams, sprawled out on the floor. 

Just last week my husband looked at me and said, "I like this age. He's just so funny and starting to do so many awesome things..." Awesome things like high-fives and throwing balls and eating the cat. If I could, I'd freeze time right here for just a little bit longer than I know it's going to last. I'm in love.

Happy Happy Birthday Stella!
