This week Little Lady turns one - what follows is a short note with a lot of photos.
Sweet Little Lady - I can't believe it's already been a year. You'd think by now I would have figured out how fast the first year flies. But once again it has slipped by so quickly, it's hard to track the moments. You have been such a blessing to us; you are more than we ever could of hoped for or expected. Your daddy is completely smitten.
We worried that your big brothers would be a little jealous but they adore you as much as we do.
They have welcomed you in to their games and you've had no trouble keeping up.
You even mastered the superhero pose before they did.
I love that you already play so well with them but I also delight in the moments when you show your more feminine side: you love admiring yourself in mirrors,
babies bring you great delight,
and you play with dolls in a way your brothers never did.
No offense to your brothers, but I also think you are much more fun to dress.
This past year you have kept us on our toes,
made us laugh,
and grew our hearts in ways we didn't know were possible
We love you and are so thankful you are ours. Happy Birthday my sweet Little Lady!
