31 days: of annabelle's first year.

It's no secret that I have become a horrible blogger over the last year. I have been trying to think of a way to get back into it but the thought of skipping the past year, the first year of Annabelle's life, seemed a little wrong to me. Trying to come up with a way to go back and add all of these posts in a way that made sense was completely overwhelming. I was so happy to hear about The Nester's 31 Days challenge and decided this would be the perfect way for me to catch all of you up on our life and share these special moments.

I'm cheating on the challenge just a bit in that my actual posts won't begin until tomorrow. But starting tomorrow, I will be spending the rest of this month blogging about the past year in our life. I'll be starting with last November, when we first brought Annabelle home. I am saving her 'birth'day week posts for, well, her first birthday week later this month. I have it all planned out and it may be a bit choppy to all of you readers (I think there are about six of you!) but that's fine by me. What I really want to do is document all of this for me, for our family, for my baby girl. 

I am so looking forward to dedicating time to reflecting on this past year in our life. I am sure I will cry more than a few tears as I remember all of the wonderful moments we've shared this year. I know it will be fun to look back at how much Annabelle has grown!

I am excited to spend the month of October remembering how this tiny, perfectly pink, precious angel

grew into this snuggly, silly, giggly baby girl.


  1. I was scrolling through the blogs that linked and saw my favorite little girl face! I knew it was my AB instantly. :) Can't wait to read about this precious angel girl!

  2. Aww - such a doll. Looking forward to following along to hear all about her!

  3. oh my gosh. if that's not THE cutest picture ever i don't know what is!!!!!
    she couldn't be more beautiful if she tried! love that girl!

  4. Welcome back to blogging!! I hope this doesn't sound creepy-- but I vividly remember the day Annabelle was born (you were due on the same day I was due with Carson)... anyhow, you posted the picture of her in her BIG PINK BOW and I seriously thought my heart might explode. She's just so precious-- I've said this before, but if we are so blessed to have a daughter, I hope she's half the darling angel that your sweet girl is.
