Twelve Months!

The day has finally come...

Baby, girl, you are officially a year old! Mommy got a bit emotional thinking back on this year and how much of a joy and blessing you have been to us. You are by far the best thing daddy and I have done and we are so thankful and proud to be your parents. We are STILL in disbelief that this year has gone by so quickly and that you are no longer our baby. Of course you will always be our "baby" but you are most definitely more a little girl these days. You are very independent and strong-willed opinionated about everything...not quite sure where you get that (haha). You are still so curious about everything and love to sit and watch what people are doing then try it yourself. You are extremely smart and it's crazy the things that you are able to understand and communicate to us. In the last month you started walking and now you are off and going! You've started "filling out" (or getting fat like grandpa says) but you are still our tiny girl. It's only appropriate that your first birthday party will be a Tiny Party and will be the event of the year!
You spent your birthday with just mommy and daddy doing lots of fun (and new) things:

pancakes with butter and a teeny bit of syrup for breakfast
(want some?)

messing up exploring daddy's man cave
(no daddy, it wasn't me)

opening birthday cards
 (let's look inside...)

(aw, man, no money in this one)

helping daddy wash the cars
(this is fun, mommy!)

devouring sharing your first berry sundae
(I'm not sure what this is, but I LIKE it!)

& playing outside
(higher, daddy, higher!)

Hope you had a fun day!

Anayah, our prayer is that the Lord continues to have His hand on your life today and always. That you will grow up in His favor and His blessings will be showered on you daily. That your heart will be full of His love and your actions and character will show the joy He has given you. May you always know that we love you and are so proud to call you our daughter.

Happy Birthday our sweet baby girl!
