Cassady is a year old!
Actually, a year old and almost 3 months.
Time is doing its notorious thing - flying by. I've said it before contented normalcy and routine have a way of speeding up time even more, moving through the days without noticing its passing until surprise, a whole year has gone by! After our last move (February 2013) normalcy was reinstated into our family, and I love it! It's been a beautiful year getting settled and feeling HOME.
That sweet baby girl of mine got jipped on being spotlighted on the 'ol blog space. That's alright isn't it, the other two did as well this past year. My three kids have taken all the extra energy I would usually give to maintaining the blog. I've heard that with each kid you take less pictures. I can definitely understand how easily that happens. Different times while Cassady was laying on a blanket achieving her first milestones I was in the bathroom changing another kid's diaper, missing the debut. While not all the first time milestones were recorded so much else was. As I put Cassady's one year slideshow together I saw how much attention, love, and stimulation she was given by her siblings and cousins. It has been an entirely different babyhood experience this time around. Even though Kobe was my second born in many things he was my first. Cayman, although older, wasn't a teacher in Kobe's baby world of observing, she was still so "young" in milestones herself. Indeed Kobe became Cayman's teacher and challenged her plateaued milestones. Now those two ride the rails of competitive achievements and create a busy environment filled with preschool playfulness, tons of talking, and dreadful sibling rivalry. Cassady was the most contented baby. The only time she became restless was during Cayman and Kobe's nap hour, when the house was still. I would call it peace and relaxing. Cassady seemed to think it was dull and boring.
We are so crazy about this little ceaseless grin-smiling girl. It's slightly terrifying how
fast everything seems to be moving these days, but we're excited for all
of the moments ahead.
Because it's always so difficult for me to choose which pictures and videos over an entire year, Cassady's montage is long (trust me, this is the shortened version)! So if you're so inclined to sit for 22 minutes here ya go...
