January 12, 2016 was Brielle’s first birthday! Crazy to remember that day a short year ago; the last weeks of pregnancy filled with anticipation, waiting, longing to meet this baby. And then she was here! The day is full of amazing memories of holding my little girl in my arms and finding out she was a girl! Such excitement. Jon, thrilled to have another little one. And Isaiah, only 13 months old, as he came into the apartment with Grandpa, looked around and said “ba-by??” Totally curious about what all this excitement was about.
Brielle, you have been an incredible addition to our family. I can’t believe that was only a year ago because it feels like you’ve been a part of us forever. You’re curiosity, excitement to discover your world and keep up with your brother are amazing.
Celebrating you this month was a joy. One of your favourite things are pearl necklaces. Well really any necklace but specifically the pearl one that I let you have (and you now broke, but you don’t seem to mind. You still play with it just the same). Because of this we decided to give necklaces away at your party. And to decorate with them in mind.
We had a group of friends over Saturday and family on Sunday to celebrate you. You had so much fun toddling around and being social with all the people who came over; soaking in all the attention.
Brielle- we look forward to the year ahead and how you will grow and change and learn and love. We are crazy about you our little girl.
