a phoebe turns 1


and just like that...our baby bee is a year old. at 1, phoebe sue is the wildest and funniest and orneriest friend in town. she twerks to pop music and snarls and growls when she's pleased. she claps for no good reason at all...has hair that will never ever stay down ever...and eats up every last bit of all the things to do and learn in this world. she's strong-willed and curious. funny and reserved. she is absolutely more beautiful and interesting a person then i could ever have dreamed her up to be. her life is a gift....and today we celebrate it over and over.

this past year has been so full and amazing and exhausting and significant. from reclaiming the birth experience to a full year of nursing every two hours...there have been moments of feeling like a super woman...and many more moments of feeling the weakest i've ever felt. but there is beauty and a whole lot of wisdom where those two meet...and i'm forever thankful for the chance to get to experience it all.

so today we clap and snarl and twerk for bee! happy happy birthday, our girl! you are loved 10x4x5x20!

Just when I thought this precious girl could not get any more cute, there she is practicing her walk and then reverting to the crab crawl right there for her online friends to enjoy. So darn cute and so well done by her beautiful and obviously very loving parents. Happy Birthday Sweet Bee.

  27. Katie, I love how you capture your family/life. Looking back through the pictures of Phoebe's first year inspires me to take more pictures of my own very young daughter. I hope to someday learn to capture life in way as beautiful as you do. Thank you so much for sharing your sweet girl with us.

  37. Hello,

    I stopped by your blog a long time ago because of a wallpaper you decided to do yourself that I really loved. I have stopped by frequently since then, I feel like I have watched your beautiful family grow and watched your own life come into such beautiful fruition. You are such a truly lovely person and I am so pleased to get to share some small part of the happiness that ensues. This whole blogger-world is still a little strange to me, but your special and wonderful corner has touched my life and I thank you. I wish you all the happiness celebrating your little one's birthday and wish you the most perfect futures full of love!
