My little tiny baby is turning 1 on September 30th. I have never felt like time has flown by so fast in my entire life. This year was a flash before my eyes. When I look back at my daughter growing up (she is now 11), it honestly felt like she was a tiny little baby/toddler for SO LONG. This first year with Emmett has felt like I accidentally blinked and he was suddenly getting ready to turn 1!
This year we have grown in to a socially conscious, green, loving family all because of this one tiny little person.
This one little person inspired me to remove all harmful chemicals from the household and use only natural products. He inspired me to exclusively breastfeed for 6 months and then continue to breastfeed until at least 2 years and after that, let him self wean. He inspired me to face parental fears of sickness and death and do hours upon hours of vaccination research, which ultimately inspired my decision to not vaccinate him ever. He inspired me to baby wear and co-sleep and cloth diaper! From all of that stemmed our now incessant need to be so green it almost hurts (in a good way!). We have our compost out back, we love our clothes line (even more with fluffy clean diapers hanging from it). We love all of our amazing, delicious fresh organic foods! We love feeling healthy and it makes me happy knowing that my children are happy, healthy, and will have a better life because of the decisions Ive made... All because of tiny little Emmett who is an inspiration 100%.
