The Best Is Yet To Come

Christmas with a little one is one of the most magical things ever. I never thought I could enjoy watching someone else open presents as much as I enjoyed watching our baby girl open her first Christmas presents.


Last year at this time I was pregnant and filled with anticipation, excitement, and anxiety of what was to come. This year we celebrated our first Christmas as a family of three and felt like we were the luckiest people to have our greatest gift here with us.

As we head into 2015, I only feel excitement and joy in anticipation of what's to come. I get to watch my baby continue to grow into a little girl. She's going to be turning one is just a few months (gasp) and I know with that will come a whole new set of fun experiences and amazing memories. A part of me wants it all to slow down so that my baby can stay my baby forever, but really... I can't wait for this next part of our journey. 

Happy New Year everyone!

These pictures are just adorable! I love the second one. LOL It really is a joy to have kids at Christmas. I really missed my Conner and Brielle this year as they were with their dad for Christmas this year. But I did have Reilly and Kaden so I am lucky to have time with them. Hope you had a great holiday and a wonderful new year!

She is so adorable!! I was just watching some old videos of my little guy and miss his baby voice and mannerisms so much. They really do grown up way too quickly.

Aww, I love how you are all wearing Christmas knits, what a cute family!

glad you had a wonderful Christmas - I think seeing Christmas through a child's eyes is awesome, so magical and wonderful, we tend to lose that as we get older.

Hope you had a very happy new year with your adorable family :)

I'm a little late commenting on this - but you're right it is the most magical thing ever! Christmas is way more fun as an adult then it ever was as a child - and it gets better as they get older because YOU get to be the magic maker. Happy New Year to you love!
