A Year Already

I am just so amazed that the last year has gone so quickly! It is really a sad thing to see how quickly time flies when you are watching your children grow up! It seems like just yesterday that I was receiving the news that I was going in for an emergency c-section and that my life was basically on the line. I was so worried that I was not going to form that bond with Audrey after she was born since I was not able to spend much time with her in the first week of her little life since I was hooked up to everything in the ICU and having everyone focus on me and not Audrey. I am so blessed that I made it through okay and that this past year has been spent making my heart as good as new!!! It really helps when you have all the support of your family and friends and knowing that I have two beautiful daughters who need me to guide them along their journey.

Audrey has grown so much in the last year and it has been so much fun watching her grow and change. She truly loves life and everyone around her is made so happy from just being around her! She laughs all the time and smiles and you can't help but feel joy when you are with her! Her whole body shows how much she enjoys being with you.

I have just recently started scrapbooking Audrey's first year of life. I am not sure why it has taken me so long to get to this point but I am happy to begin. I think that in the beginning I was still having anxiety and was worried to think too much about the entire process. I am so glad to be able to scrapbook and show Audrey how much she is loved and cared for as I did for Kayla.

I wanted to share a scrapbook page and the invitation to Audrey's birthday party. The theme is "monkeys" because we call Audrey our "Chunky Monkey!"

I made this card with the Cuttlebug "Birthday" folder. I LOVE the Cuddlebug! The stamp is by Stampendous and the card is DCWV.

For this layout I used Heidi Grace patterned paper and Bazzil cardstock. The brads are Doodlebug (I think!)

I absolutely LOVE these photos of Audrey! They totally show how Audrey just laughs with her whole body! The puffy letters are American Crafts and the patterned paper is Making Memories. The cardstock is again, Bazzil.

Thanks so much for stopping by and reading my Blog! I will be back soon to share some of my projects that I have been working on with the girls!!!
