Oh my goodness, my sweet baby girl is ONE!!! One entire year old. Happy first birthday to our darling + precious Remerie Rue!
So many things I could say about our Remie girl, we all just adore her. From the moment we found out we were expecting, it felt like such a dream and all this time later, it seriously still does. She is truly the greatest surprise of my entire life and the most amazing lesson that some of life’s very best things come from plans we never made.
Remie is as sweet as they come + also sooooo mischievous, she gets into all the things and smiles and waves when you catch her in the act. She is determined, daring, and so strong for such a little thing, she already keeps up with her big sisters and thinks they are hilarious. She loves to cuddle, but only for a few seconds at a time, and pats my back every single time I pick her up (the best!). She always bobs her head up and down, smacks her cute little lips into this pucker that owns me, and loooooves music — she already has the best dance moves! She is not the typical “easy third kid”, she is super hesitant to even look at anyone she doesn’t know well, she doesn’t like toys, hair bows, or not being held — but is so dang cute that you forgive her for all of it. We laugh that she really doesn’t look like any of us 🙂 but her golden hair and skin are one of my favorite things about her, she truly is a beauty inside + out.
I might have shared before, I will never ever forget crying by myself in my car the day Waverly turned one. It was such a rush of emotions, I felt like time was moving so fast, that there was no way to stop it and I just wanted so badly to hang on to her first year longer. Of course this time around is still bittersweet, but I know how much we have to look forward to and all that is to come. I truly just feel so GRATEFUL for these sweet little girls and am so excited to watch them grow together.
Happiest birthday Remerie Rue, we love you sooooooooooo much, life is so much more beautiful with you in it.
