Cinco de Wha?

Seriously, I would appreciate it if someone would please stop the clock.
Here's my girl, one year ago today, not quite big enough for a high chair, just starting baby food (please ignore the chaos that is my island in the background):
Here she is, just yesterday, all independent, driving around in her cozy coupe, eating all "grown up" food, drinking out of a sippy: I love her to pieces and I could never explain in words how much she means to me and how much of a wonderful addition she has been to our lives. Selfishly, however, I do wish we could pause for a while. She's amazingly fun, has such an awesome personality, makes us laugh and smile each and every day and is growing into quite the Daddy's girl these days (of course she's still connected to my hip in the meantime). I want to hold onto this moment for a little while longer!
Happy Cinco de Mayo! Looking forward to a couple margaritas and some tacos myself this evening, but first Mia and I are going to see my niece Graysen in her spring musical!
Hope everyone is having a great Thursday!

Mia looks SO grown up in that Cozy Coupe! I seriously cannot believe what a difference 9 months makes, let alone one year! Even having documented so much of Carter's life, I feel like his birth was a distant, distant memory! This is just craziness! Love her galoshes, too! She's so hip and stylin!

Happy Cinco de Mayo to you too!!!! Let me know if you find that pause button - I need one too. Hope you're having a great week:)

If you find the secret to slowing time down, please let me know. I'd LOVE to do the same! :)

Your girl is a doll.
