It cannot be...


Happy 1st Birthday!!! As I type, the memories of the night you were born flood my mind. That night, knowing how I loved your big brother, I knew for sure that I would love you. I knew you would be darling. I knew that I would think you were the cutest thing that ever graced this earth. I knew you would be precious to your Daddy and me.

But I just didn't know how much. You have far exceeded anything I could have ever imagined. You have enriched our lives so much. Your spunk and personality keep us laughing. "Laid Back" is not a phrase that many would associate with you. You are constantly into something, constantly moving, constantly exploring. Life is an adventure everyday with you! You bring such joy to us, and to everyone who is around you.

I love, love, love you. I am so happy to be your Momma.

At 12 months you are:
*Walking. You started taking your first steps at 11 months, and it is old hat now. I love to watch you wobble around. SO CUTE!
*Babbling up a storm. You are constantly "saying" something. You try your hardest to convey what you are thinking. The only real words that I think you say are "mama", "dada", and "bugga". "Bugga" being for Jackson.
*You don't use the word "no", but you shake your head from side to side when you don't want something.
*You love to read books, play with anything your brother is playing with, and explore anywhere in the house.
*You love music and dance all the time.
*You can have a temper at times.
*I love you even when you have a temper =)
*You, along with your brother and father are still the lights of my life.
