It's a Belly Party....

Friday, February 11, 2011

What a difference a year makes.  Last year on this day my heart was so full I didn't think it could experience anything more without bursting from sheer joy.  BDC and I welcomed our newest family member into the world and experienced emotions I didn't know were possible.

In one day we watched our daughter give birth.  We became grandparents, and new parents all in one day and the emotions were....well there just really are no words.  We have grown this last year in ways that have made us stronger, made us love deeper and given us the opportunity to embrace parenthood with more appreciation than I dreamed was possible.

If you are new here and don't know the story of Belly, please feel free to catch up here.  We'll wait.

All caught up?

Today we're celebrating just how much joy you can experience in the blink of an eye.  We aren't having a party until next weekend, as we've all been sick this week, including Belly, but nevertheless, today BDC and I have hearts full of joy and happiness.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BELLY!
(In case you're wondering about the moniker Belly?  I tend to give everyone I love nicknames. I started calling her Khylee Annie Belly pronounced with a very heavy Italian accent <think big Italian Chef> because her name is Khylee Anne.  Belly just kind of stuck)

 


I will post some pictures of her Princess Party after we shower her with Birthday wishes next weekend!  Until then....HAPPY BIRTHDAY BELL!
