This post is sponsored by Carter’s; however all thoughts and opinions are my own. Babies change everything. I know, I know, this is not a news flash, just a friendly reminder. And those changes come quick. The first couple months you’re trying to figure out a sleep schedule (which for my kids is still unknown) then before you know it, you’re trying to figure out what they like to eat, then helping them crawl, then walk, and in a blink of an eye, you’ll find yourself chasing a toddler around the park for an hour.

I’d be lying if I said I don’t miss my high heels. I do. I miss them very much. Sometimes I create scenarios in my head and pretend that I’ll be going somewhere that requires me to be in heels…so I’ll get dressed for my everyday errands/life and put on some heels.

Lucky me, not only do I start a new calendar year but I also get to start a new birth year. My birthday falls on the 2nd and I think it’s pretty great.

Yes, you, my little buddha baby. This post is for you. You’ve got your first year under your belt and I am so ready to start this next chapter of your life. Not that the first year wasn’t fun. It was. You’ve shown us how to be easy going. You’ve shown us all how to be happier. Your constant smile and giggles are contagious. My neurotic ways have been pacified by your peaceful stares and gentles touch. You, my angel, are exactly what we needed in the family. And that’s why I am so excited and overjoyed for what comes…
