It is a bittersweet feeling to watch you grow up and get bigger, my little one. And I’m always sad to find that some of your cutest tiny outfits are suddenly too small. So it’s a good thing there’s always something equally adorable for you to grow into.

A Note from Angie
For the last few months, I've found myself feeling a bit sad whenever little Keira Jane outgrows something. She might be my only baby, after all. It's definitely a bittersweet feeling. But as she becomes more interactive and fun, I'm recognizing that the "sweet" is overtaking the "bitter." Whenever she grows out of one adorable phase, she grows into another equally adorable phase. And as she leaves one precious outfit behind, there are countless new favorites waiting for her to wear. When I had that realization, I had this layout on my "to-do" list for a while, and this prompt was just the push I needed to get it finished.

March Fun Fact
My birthday and my husband’s birthday are both in March—just 10 days apart. Since his birthday comes first, it’s nearly impossible for him to forget mine!
