Six Years Ago Today

Six years ago today our first child was born.  We were awestruck, excited, overjoyed, scared.  We had no idea how much our lives would change, for the better.  We have both been the type of parents that have never wanted to stop time, but rather, we always looked forward to the next stage.  Crawling, walking, eating, talking, writing, and on and on.  But now, time has gotten a little out of hand and I do want it to stop.  

This past year with you Taylor has been perfection.  You have grown leaps and bounds and we are truly so happy and proud to call you our daughter.  No one, nothing, can ever replace the feeling we have watching you grow.  But could you please stop, just for a little bit? 

In an effort to never forget these years, your daddy and I spent the past week going through the last 6 years of pictures.  We laughed and cried, a lot, even your daddy.  The pictures in this little video all tell a story for us, for you, and each one holds a special place in our hearts for its ability to strike a memory for us and help us relive it just like it was yesterday.  We hope you like it and treasure it for a long time. 

We love you sweet girl.  Happy Birthday Taylor
*Song by Taylor Swift - Never Grow Up

    Watching your video confirms my need to want to stop working and spend as much time with my girl, although I love my job my heart is with her and I feel torn every. single. day!
