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

six days and counting and your favorite hi, baby. baby will be a baby no more!
to continue with this weeks theme of all things stella and one year olds-i have asked my friend mandy from a sorta fairytale to write something about her one year old. the adorable bennett just turned one in january and stella and i have been lucky enough to be 'in real life' as well as bloggy friends with them and have gotten to watch stella and bennett grow up together. i can't wait to hear what she has to say!


Being a part of the blogging community is so amazing! When Melissa contacted me to see if I'd write a little something in honor of Stella's 1st birthday, I was happy to oblige. She asked some of us to talk about our little One Year Old's. She didn't have to ask me twice! :) Bennett is 13 months now. It seems like yesterday that he was a newborn. And although I miss my tiny little baby, I absolutely love the stage he's in now!! Bennett is so much fun - he's outgoing, he is such a joy to be around. He loves to eat, dance, laugh, play, read books, take baths, go on walks, watch Toy Story, and of course.... he loves to get into trouble! :) 
But I think the best part about having a One year old, is watching them turn into a little person. I can see the best parts of both my Husband and I - in my child. I think one of the most gratifying things in the world, is to watch your baby learn & grow. To watch them discover the world around them... one baby step at a time. From the first time they roll over, to the first step they take. Every little accomplishment is the most exciting thing to happen that day. And this is just the beginning! I look forward to the excitement I have to look forward to every day to come!
