Happy Birthday Sally Jane!
Today is my youngest daughters birthday. She is one years old today. I took these photos yesterday in her new birthday dress from Mimi. (thanks mimi)
Things I remember about last year on this day.
Great delievery nurse, annie kate's excitement, all of jeff's friends visiting while i was in labor, jeff having lunch at Panera while i was trying to hold the baby in til he got back, Dr. Rush saying , "it looks like a Sally Jane" laughing while i was delivering her, wonderful nurses, little pink chicken, the pink minkie outfit she came home in, Sharon driving all the way to the hospital that night so the girls could see Sally Jane, jeff sleeping in my room with me, visit from Dr. Netterville that night, sweet potato pancakes from Sonja D. and that wonderful feeling of loving your husband so much more when you hold his sweet little baby. (ohh i am getting a little emotional)
Happy Birthday Sally Jane! We love you. and a happy birthday to my friend Kelli F!

Happy Happy Birthday Sally Jane!!!
Turning one is such a fun birthday to celebrate, isnt it amazing how fast that year has gone by? The memories of delivery all always so fun to remember, and it sounds like yours were GREAT!! I had to hold Luke in for an hour until my doctor came!! I know the feeling!! I never realized I could love Ryan any more than I did after I saw him holding our sweet new angel!!!! We can't wait to see you Sally Jane!! AND....Kristi we should do a big birthday cake at the reunion for all the birthdays in the family..

Very sweet Post Kristi! Happy Birthday to darling Sally Jane. I love what you had to say as you reflected back on her birth. It's crazy how fast the time flies.

Kristi Brooke said...

can i just how fast for everyone else. this has been the longest year in my life! not that it was bad, but it has definately felt like a whole year!

Jill said...

I'm sure with her being your 3rd baby, and with Caroline turning into a big handfull the time has felt like the full year, but don't you still feel like "wow, she's 1 already?" Or not.

Kristi Brooke said...

oh yes. that is true. i am sure it was caroline's antics that slowed the year down abit.

Sweet post, and cute pictures! I've loved the year between one ant two. They become so much fun--plus now you can start counting down to nursery! I don't think I've told you that I love your girls' names.

Happy Birthday Sally Jane!!
You share the same birthday as my son Zachary. He's five today, time goes by so fast enjoy every minute of it! I know you don't know who i am, I found your blog while i was blogging around one day. You have so many great ideas. I love how you celebrate every holiday, it inspired me to do something special to celebrate Zacharys birthday this year. We have done something special every day this week. Thanks for the inspirations!

Happy birthday Sally Jane! She seems like such a sweet baby. I am already getting sad about Eva turning one this month. She is growing up too fast. Glad you have those happy memories of her birth. Hey, what's up with laughing while delivering her? I certainly have never had that experience...
