I'm still in awe that I have a baby girl. You're not such a "baby" anymore. Sweetheart, Today is your birthday and you are ONE! I am so shocked. This year has been one amazing roller coaster ride! You went from being a very hard newborn to the most easy going, perfect baby girl a mommy could ask for. I have had an amazing time being your mommy and I can't wait for more hugs and kisses, more milestones and even more BUTT changes. :) I love you so much. I would do anything for you. You are my strength, my light and my entire world. I hope that you have a great birthday baby girl!

Here are some of the things you're up to these days!

*You got your puppy Koda as an early Christmas present. You love him!

*You are walking baby girl! You took your first steps at Grandma and Grandpa's. Right to Grandpa of course.

*Goes up the stairs with no help. but you think you can just walk right off the top stair (to come back down) with no help. Scares mommy to death!

*You absolutely LOVE books. You love to turn the pages, look at the pictures and you love the stories.

*You have 3 1/2 teeth. I say 1/2 because that top left tooth is just not comin' through!

*We tried whole milk for a bit but it seems like your body didn't take it very well. We'll try again soon. *update. seems like you're taking it fine this time!

*You eat whatever mom and dad eat for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

*You are quite the daredevil! We've caught you a few times just diving off the couch head first.

*You love food. You eat pretty much everything without choking. Mom just has to make sure the bites are small enough.

*You love to be tossed up into the air.

*You love being hung upside down by dad.

*You scream for our attention and then do something silly when we look. My favorite is when you "wink" like dad. You just blink both eyes.

*You are the biggest FAKER! You can fake laugh, fake cry, fake cough and it's all so funny!

*You sleep great through the night! You've been great at this since probably 5 months old!

*You wear size 4 shoes but not very often because you're feet are chunky!!

*You love to push your buggy cars around on the floor. Sometimes I think you even make car noises!

*You play a great game of tug o' war with Koda.

*You LOVE the train Grandma Shelly and Brian got you for Christmas!

*You can growl like Koda and it's very cute!

*You give a great high five! and afterward, you're so proud of yourself you clap!

*You love the conversations you and Grandma Theresa have.

*You spend so much time with Grandma Theresa that you get more sad when she leaves than when mommy or daddy leaves!

*You hold out a toy to show us, sometimes share it and sometimes you cry if you were just trying to show us.

*You can understand a lot more than you can say. You're not a big talker right now but you listen if we ask you to do something.

*You absolutely LOVE going to the store with mommy.

There is so much more that you do everyday.
You're an amazing addition to our family
and I'm so glad that we've been blessed with such an amazing daughter!
I love you baby!

I'm here.
Always have been.
Always will be.
