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!

  1. This made me cry 😭 happy birthday Remy, watching you grow up has been such a pleasure. You are such a beautiful girl inside and out 💕

    • 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!

  4. Love the video and nice to see you in it! Happy birthday to Remy.

    • Oh, thank you!!

      It’s always nice to hear from you, and I appreciate your kind words on her birthday.


  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.


  • Welcome, friends! My name is Emory. I am a wife, mother of two (one earthside and one with the angels), and an animal rescuer. This is our life on the Canadian prairies.

  • I was intending for this video to only be in my stories. After watching it again and again, I decided to post it in my feed as well. I wish to never forget moments like these. Remy’s typical game of asking to go in her crib only to throw everything out of it and pretend to go to sleep. Or her new one- taking her rings in with her and playing with them (after she throws everything out, of course). She makes me say every colour before going to the next one. Then she stacks them up, gets out, and shelves the toy until we have to repeat the game all over again. I let her make her messes all while trying to spend every spare minute with her. These are our days and rituals. I don’t know about you, but I certainly don’t wake up with this much energy.
