marlowe's birthday invites

i spent so much time on marlowe's birthday party invitations
and i'm so happy with how they turned out.
i've also been going crazy making banners
and garland
and spray painting gold everything i can get my hands on.
i still can't believe my baby is going to be one 
a month from today.

when you have a baby
everyone tells you to enjoy it
that it goes by too fast
that they'll be graduating high school before you can even blink.
and you laugh 
and say you know it
but it's true.
oh, it's true.
i can still remember marlowe's birth as if it were yesterday
but here she is about to turn one.
a whole year.
an entire trip around the sun.

she says mama
and papa
and bye-bye
and can sign for milk.
she still won't take bottles
she's so close to walking
and sleeps in her own crib now.

she is a stubborn little thing
and throws a tantrum like a full grown 3 year old
but oh how i love her.
she brings so much joy into our lives
and every morning 
when i see her for the first time
is like christmas.
every. single. day.


  1. Lady, these are the best invites ever. You're so clever. And your words are beautiful and so true. Josephine is two in just over a month, and I cannot believe it. Time goes too fast! Xx
