Updated! Lucy's First Birthday in Pictures...

Our darling girl is one whole year old today. Has it really been one year since I held that tiny baby in my arms only minutes after she was born? Did the hospital really send us home with that sweet baby? I mean, did they know that I honestly knew next to nothing about babies? Honestly, it boggles the mind. And yet here we are, a year later...old pros with one another. We must have learned so fast, although I don't remember the learning part and I cannot, for the life of me, remember not knowing how to be a mother.

How fast this year has flown by. Excuse me, can we just slow down time? Just a little? My tiny infant is now bordering on toddlerdom. How can something be so beautiful and heartbreaking at the same time? :: sigh ::

We had a little party for Lucy today to celebrate. Pretty simple really -- the lovely "1st Birthday Dress" her cousins wore on their birthdays, dollar store decorations, Rob-made-from-scratch Birthday Cake and ice cream. Add in friends, family and a gaggle of babies and voila! a wonderful birthday afternoon.

Without further adieu-- Lucy's Birthday In Pictures:

Happy Birthday, Lucy!!! It looks like Lucy had a great party! (Although many of the pics say "unavailable")

Funny you describe Lucy's first birthday as beautiful and sad at the same time because I was feeling the same way about my Zoe soon turning one. As I was rocking her to sleep tonight and praying over her, all I could do was weep. I feel so blessed to be her mommy, but it saddens me that time is going so quickly. It really does seem like we *just* brought her home, yet in 5 short weeks she'll be ONE! How can that be?! I wouldn't change a thing (other than slowing down time). Truly bittersweet.

I hope Lucy's second year brings you even more joy! God bless you and your beautiful family.

Happy 1st Birthday to your little Lucy, what a milestone! Btw, the pix are lovely, could u disclose what kind of camera do you have? I'm in the market for a new one and am having a hard time finding one that takes good indoor pictures. Yours were great.
