Happy birthday, baby girl.

Wednesday, October 10, 2012
Today is your birthday! You are officially one year old. Though I will continue to call you my "baby girl" (because, really, I still call Henry my baby boy sometimes), you're definitely entering your toddlerhood. Walking/running, trying to communicate, snuggles and hugs and always wanting to be a part of the action with your big brother (except for the past few days with this sickness you have). A bummer you had to be sick on your birthday, but at least we got the party in first!

It's hard to believe it's been a year already. It seems like just yesterday I showed daddy those 2 pink lines, and then a few months after that I pulled that "Little Sister" onesie out of the box and we knew we were going to have a daughter. We've bought a lot of pink since that day. :)

You have brought so much love and joy to our family. We all love you so much. Your smiley face peeking over your crib in the morning and all your funny faces and giggles at mealtimes are some of my favorite parts of the day. You sure love your food (unlike big brother) and will eat nearly everything we put in front of you (but really, what was up with not wanting to dive into that chocolate cake? That took us all by surprise!).  Apples appear to be your current favorite.

You have a crazy obsession with Dora the Explorer and will smile and giggle whenever you see her face. You love your blankie, your pink bear, and any toy that belongs to Henry.

You are constantly on the move trying to get into most things that you shouldn't be and are especially eager to help mommy load and unload the dishwasher.

You have 8 teeth, weigh 20 pounds and have a bit more hair than Henry did at 1 year old. I'm hoping I can do pigtails before you turn 2. :)

Mommy, daddy, and Henry love you so much. You are our little sunshine and our lives wouldn't be complete without you.

Happy birthday, baby girl.
