I knew I wanted to blog for my daughters to look back on one day, so they could get a glimpse into their babyhood and lives, know my heart, and they too could read the ups and downs of parenting from me. It has been much more difficult to blog with two kiddos, than just one, but I am glad to say we made it a year. Blogging was a way for me to journal my grief with Holden, then journal my joy with the girls. That being said, this will be my last blog. It is so very bittersweet.
At 1 Year, You Are:
- Standing alone
- Walking with furniture
- Saying, "Dada", "Momma", "Bobba" (bottle), "Hi", "Bye" and singing so sweetly!
- Strong-willed and let us know when you want and DON'T want something ;)
- Wearing 12-18 month clothes
- Wearing size 5 diapers
- Weigh 19 lbs. (other official stats coming soon)
- Loving baby dolls (you got an American Girl Bitty Baby for Christmas)
- Mimicking anything Grey does
- Climbing stairs
- Giving our hearts unlimited JOY
our little berry-lover had berry cups for her bday!
best petit fours from Stein's!
Rose was just not loving her cake this year. ;) We had to place raspberries by it for her to be more interested. Sweet girl was dealing with a fever and ear infections though, so she may have liked it more if she was feeling better.
Sweetheart. My bits. I look back at this year with you and I am absolutely left wordless. You have changed my life, my heart, and my everything. You are someone I cannot imagine life without. I am incredibly grateful for the JOY you bring to our home. Your wit, smiles - and even your strong will - are so perfect. You were certainly born in my heart, such a special place to be born from. You truly are our grace upon grace. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
I love you more than I will ever be able to say.
I look forward to watching you grow each and every day, changing the world.
Thank you for being my littlest love.
Love you always and forever,
From his abundance we have all received one gracious blessing after another. John 1:16
