baby girlIt is hard to believe that my baby girl is 1 year old today – in ways it feels like I was just announcing my pregnancy, enjoying the baby shower bash, and then announcing her arrival here with you all. But part of being a mom (and getting older) is realizing how much time really does fly…

I remember when I was little my grandma would always tell me that time flies – and of course I didn’t believe her because “kid time” is so much different. Waiting for summer vacation, or Christmas, always took forever. Yet, now as a grown adult, and a mother, I understand what she was saying.  My oldest will be 7 soon, and that is even more unreal in ways – he is going to be a second grader!

Wasn’t it just yesterday that I graduated college? or got married? we bought our first house?

But this has been an exciting year in our house with our added little girl. She has been such a joy with all the giggles and baby’s “firsts” – and my husband and I have learned that 3 kids REALLY does mean you are outnumbered. :)  I’m looking forward to watching her grow older and share in more “mother and daughter” activities. I love having boys, too, don’t get me wrong – having a daughter is just different and I feel blessed to get to experience both.

birthday girlI wanted to thank all of you who have been with me over the past few years, it has been fun to share in my joys (and challenges!) with you. Of course I enjoy sharing deals, coupons, and other ways to save, but it also so nice to have a community here, too. Thank you for being for reading and sharing with me!

So tell me – Does time fly for you, too?

    Oh yeah! Time flies all right. I have a 7-1/2 year old son that I placed into an open adoption. I get to go see him twice a year, and each time I go visit I can’t believe how he’s grown and how mature he is getting :)
