1st birthday: video

Processed with VSCO with a4 presetI am amazed that my darling Remy will be celebrating her birthday in just two days. Although I have been preparing for her party for over a month, to have a one year old is shocking. 

This last year was by far the best year of my life. My life only truly began once I had my daughter. Before her, I think that I was lost. Now I have a purpose.

Remy is an intelligent, independent, and serious little girl. She loves to talk and eat. She adores books, animals, and being outdoors. She has two teeth, can say four words, mirrors every sound we make, is learning sign language, crawls, and is so close to walking on her own. She looks like her daddy but has my personality. She and I just get one another. 

This last year was not always easy. From acid reflux, to work and school, to all of our family residing in another city or province, to living in three different houses. Yet, the fact that we always had a little face smiling up at us seemed to make every challenge almost or completely bearable. I tried hard to cherish every moment of every day with Remy, and in the end, I very nearly did.

Thank you for joining me in my pregnancy and baby journey. I will always be grateful for our little girl and how she made me a mother. I hope that you enjoy this video that I made, and will continue to follow along for the second year of her life. You guys are honestly so amazing!

    • Aweee, you’re the sweetest!!!! I’m sorry that it made you cry. Hopefully they were happy tears.

      Having your first child turn one is so difficult! Now that we are on the other side of it, I feel a big accomplishment. Like, ‘ok we did this, she’s alive and happy and maybe the rest of her years won’t be so hard’. I feel so excited for the days ahead.

      I can’t wait to see Addy become one years old. I’m sure she’ll be the cutest birthday girl ever, and her party will be spectacular!! Especially if you’ve already began planning it!

  5. Happy (almost) birthday, Remy! Isn’t it crazy how now that whole “the days are long, but the years are short” quote now makes a lot more sense?

    • Thank you!

      I’m not sure if I’ve ever heard that quote before, but it totally makes sense. It’s kind of sad, really.



  • Hello, friends. My name is Emory. I live on the Canadian prairies with my husband, daughter, and animals. Welcome!

  • F*ck. I’m not sure how much more my little bug can take. Looking back at my @Instagram posts, Remy began to get sick exactly one month ago. Since then, she has had the flu, strep throat twice, and now what is essentially scarlet fever. We spent our morning at the hospital and even after a plethora of tests, she came home in good spirits- playing with our dog and her dolls and giving us hug after hug. My heart breaks for her, and for everyone else with a sick child. It’s not easy. I feel broken inside. My little wanderer.
