Y3W | Tomorrow? We celebrate.

Let's take a look back, shall we?
This was me, last year, at 38w pregnant with my baby girl...And bare belly with a 9lb baby...
Whoa, I do not miss the pain of a belly measuring 6 weeks ahead.

May 20, 2010 was my last day of work. I wrote this post through tear-filled eyes:

Here I sit. In my office. On my very last day of work before maternity leave. The next time I sit in this office, I will be a mother of two. I will have a daughter. I will have a 2 year old son. I will have countless sleepless nights, loads of laundry, and dirty diapers under my belt.

I will also have experienced meeting my daughter for the first time. Seeing her with her daddy. Seeing her with her big brother.
My heart will grow twice as big as it is this very moment.

The next time I sit in this office, my entire world will be different. And I can not wait.


And here I sit today, with the same tear-filled eyes thinking back on how fast this last year has gone. My baby girl will be 1 in just 4 days.

Tomorrow? We celebrate.


We celebrate her first year of life. We celebrate our happiness surrounded by family and friends. We celebrate Brynn, our beautiful baby girl.

And the sun will be out, my friends. Oh, yes it will...
I have the day "off" today, but I will certainly be running around like a crazy person trying to get everything ready for the party. I have a hair appointment this morning, then it's off to pick up pictures, order balloons, make banners, buy flowers, vacuum, dust, and so much more. I did get SO MUCH done yesterday and checked a lot of things off my to do list {including finding white capri's!!}

I have to remind myself to take a ton of pictures of everything tomorrow and to break out the Flip and record some of the party {something I forgot to do at Carter's 1st birthday party and I was sooooo upset!} Lesson learned, see. =)

Omgoodnesss! you and your belly were so horizontal! So cute. And can you believe how fast a year goes? Thats the type of denial I live in. Time? Wtf. It flies too fast.

Can't believe it has been a year! Enjoy tomorrow! So glad the weather is cooperating.

It's amazing our bellies can withstand the monster babies. I wish I would have taken more pictures to see how big I got, since J was 9lb 5oz. I'm doing better with the pics this time!

How is Brynn 1 already?! Can't wait to see the pictures. I'm sure it will be the social event of the season ;D

I can't wait to hear all the details of the party! Gotta love the 9lb belly :) I was there with ya :)

I remember that belly. How could anyone forget ;)

Everything will be perfect and all your hard work will pay off. So don't fret. A word to the wise though. Hand off that flip camera to a family member and tell them to start filming. That way, you don't have to worry about it!

Have fun!

Hey Jenni! I was watching the NBC 10 news this morning and saw Brynn's sweet picture on the "First Birthdays" segment...I turned to my husband and said " Omg that's Jenni's baby girl!" Hope you have a great party today!
