Two Years as a Mommy

My life changed in so many ways two years ago. 

After a fast labor and delivery, I sat in bed with a tiny person on my chest and I fell in love - nothing else mattered. I didn't care that I wasn't wearing make-up or that my hair was a mess. I forgot that a few minutes prior the contractions made me feel like I was being hit by a train again and again...

I held my daughter against my skin and I would not trade that moment for anything else in this world. 

Two years later and that tiny person is bigger, full of spunk and no longer likes to sit still for more than 2 seconds. And I love her just the same. Every day that I get to spend with her is a precious gift. 

I cannot imagine life without Sariah Faith and I so look forward to the adventures ahead! I cannot believe my tiny baby is now a two year old little girl.

Two Years Old

In many ways it feels like Sariah has always been a part of our family. However, I cannot believe my little baby is now a two year old toddler.

The toddler stage has been hard and tiring at times, but it has also been so much fun!

I love to have conversations with my daughter. I love that she asks for Dada 20 times a day and talks about him when he is at work. I love to listen to her sing around the house. I love that she runs to me and gives me random kisses throughout the day. I love that we have a rhythm that works well for all of us. I love that she tries to be helpful and wants to do what I am doing.

I love my girl!

To celebrate her second birthday, the three of us packed a picnic and headed to Mt. Baker with no plans other than just having fun together. The photographer in me planned a mini-birthday session up in the mountains and I absolutely love these photos of Sariah surrounded by breathtaking views.
