Dear Bella

"No one will ever know the strength of my love for you. After all, you are the only one who knows what my hearts sounds like from the inside."

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ISABELLA VITA

My baby turned 1 three days ago. Excuse me while I go cry, again. This girl has truly made the last twelve months of my life the very best yet. She’s my angel. My everything. My heart is walking outside of my body and it’s the best feeling. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I never understood when my Mom used to say to me, “when you’re a parent, you’ll understand.” Mom, I get it. Bella, your Dada and I love you beyond any words we could express to you. Always know that we’re going to shower you with love, hugs and kisses every single day - - even when you’re a teenager and “too cool” for us - - just so you can feel how loved, special, and beautiful you are. 

I can’t wait to watch you continue to grow, learn and develop, become independent, do what you love, travel the world, make lasting friendships and more - - just don’t grow up too fast, okay? Thank you for making us belly laugh everyday, for being our light in the dark, our rainbow after many storms, and the smile in our eyes. Thank you for choosing us to be your parents. We love you so much. 

Here are some gorgeous photos from her Cake Smash photoshoot by Shirly Schvartzman

How are you even real? She really loved getting her pictures taken in the basket for some reason. No complaints here!

I can’t handle her leg in the air. She’s a natural. CRYING.

How gorgeous is this cake!? Nine Cakes in Brooklyn, NY made it for us. They did an amazing job and the cake was delish.

Okay, so this is when she started to get cranky and we had to pull out all the squeaky toys and act like weirdos in the background to make her happy.
