Oh darling, don't you ever grow up.

I am going to try really hard not to get emotional, but all I can think of right now is Taylor Swift's "Dont Ever Grow Up":

Your little hand is wrapped around my finger, and it's so quiet in the world tonight/
Your little eyelids flutter cause you're dreaming so I tuck you in, turn on your favorite nightlight/
To you, everything is funny/ You've got nothing to regret/ I'd give all I have, honey/ If you could stay like that/ Oh darling, don't you ever grow up, don't you ever grow up/ You can stay this little/ Oh darling, don't you ever grow up, don't you ever grow up/ It could stay this simple/ I won't let nobody hurt you/ Won't let no one break your heart/ No one will desert you/ Just try to never grow up/ Never grow up.

I cannot believe my little man is one tomorrow. I just keep thinking about the first time I had my little baby and now he is walking (took his first steps yesterday!) Cole has brought so much joy into our family and we love him more than anything. Derek and I were talking the other day about how we can't imagine our life any different. We are a very blessed family. Here is a timeline from us announcing our pregnancy to today!











  1. i know exactly how you feel! drake turns 3 tomorrow! so hard to watch them grow up so quickly.

  2. This kid! It's weird to remember holding him in the hospital for the first time because it feels like it was yesterday. My favorite shot is the candid one of him in "downward dog" :). Happy Birthday "Little Man"!

  3. That last pic is adorable. So many of them were. He seems like such a happy guy. Happy Birthday!
