Wow, what a year it has been!
I started 2010 with this tiny little being who I still barely knew, but who at the same time was more familiar to me than myself. Now, on this last day of the year, that little being is a baby no longer but a little girl. She is walking, she is talking, she tries to assert her independence, she truly has her own little personality - strike that, a very big personality - she has become Georgia. I question whether we will ever see another year with so much change in those 365 days.
I can sum up the year with just a few words - oh how I love that little girl.
So here's a look at some of my favorite things from this year and things I've come to appreciate:
Toys are now the new decorating tools I use in my home, coffee is my saving grace, little tongues sticking out of little mouths, a refrigerator now covered in little girl artwork...
Little girl smiles and a finger that always seems to find her mouth, hand-me-downs (this one a toy from my sister), little fingers and sippy cups, a little girl liking Nutella (or in this case the store version)...
Tiny toothbrushes and training toothpaste, my husband who gives me strength and shows me love and keeps me sane when he's not driving me crazy, friends and family members (and the ones who send Christmas cards get bonus points), colorful plastic spoons that fit tiny mouths and just scream "a little girl lives here"...
Little girl yawns, tiny feet minus shoes, hair that now brushes her neck and occasionally sports tiny curls...
And here are some of my favorite pictures from 2010. Bear with me, this could be a little long, but I hope you enjoy the look back. :)
