It was almost time

We are planning a celebration around here!! 
In about a week, (next Friday) Makenah will be ONE! How fast does a year go?! I know that most all parents think that, and I have found it to be so true! I can't believe it! 
She is the sweetest thing, and we just love love love her to pieces!! You can bet there will be more posts to come about this celebration ahead!  YAY!

So, what was going on a year ago? It was almost time, and we didn't even know it.
Exactly one year ago, February 24th, Bryan took this picture of me. 
 I was 35 weeks.
(Interesting side note: Did you know Bryan got roped into my master plan of taking a picture every week to document the pregnancy? Yep, every week, multiple shots. We did it. You have been spared the bare belly shot. What a wonderful guy.)

Makenah surprised us a week later.  
We were ready!
I had felt the need to do some preparing during that week. 
The house had been cleaned, we put in the carseat, my bag was packed ( can ask Bryan how much I decided I wanted to add when it was actually time to leave. :), Makenah's room was ready, and I had wrapped everything up at school. And then, in God's perfect timing, Makenah came!!!

Such fond memories of all that getting ready. I loved that time, preparing, anticipating when she would come. It makes me so happy just thinking about it.
