Seems like just yesterday I was sitting in the hospital seeing you for the first time. I still remember every single detail about that day and the days that followed. Your Daddy and I were so incredibly smitten with you. We thoroughly enjoyed the two days in the hospital when it was just the three of us..we knew when we came home that we'd have 3 other boys around and it would be loud and crazy and we just soaked up every second we got to spend with you by ourselves. It was glorious. I can not believe that a year has gone by since we first laid eyes on you and what an incredible year it has been. I have learned that the love that I feel for you is stronger than I ever imagined it could be. I have figured out that when I thought your Daddy would be most protective over you I might have been wrong because I don't believe I'll ever let you out of my sight. You are my heart and soul and I am so incredibly blessed to have you in my life. You have grown so much over this past year and become such a beautiful little girl. You've conquered crawling and are so fast I think you could win races. You've pulled yourself up and are starting to walk along the furniture alittle from time to time. You really don't concentrate on it much though so I think walking is still alittle while away and I don't care because I want you to stay little for as long as possible. Your laugh is infectious...when you smile it overtakes your entire face. It is impossible to see you smile and not get a grin on my face. You at one have seven teeth ... I am shocked that you have such a mouthful of teeth but they're all there and as adorable as can be. You're still not that into eating baby food. You have gone through stages but overall you'd much rather have your bottle. Trying to get you to eat food is a challenge in itself. You still don't like to nap. You're the best cat napper in the world though...I can count the number of times that you've napped longer than 40 minutes on one hand. I am so looking forward to watching you grow..my sweet girl...we have so much to look forward to. I am going to be by your side through everything and I will always be there for you no matter what. You are such a blessing in my life and I'm honored to be your mommy.
