Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star

Look at you, you've come so far!


I can't believe it was only a year ago that Sweet Pea joined our lives. In many ways it feels like she has always been a part of our family. In other ways it seems like she just got here, my sweet baby girl.


A year of midnight feedings (still!, what's up with that?), and diapers, and firsts, and gummy smiles followed by pumpkin-toothy smiles, and da-da-DAAAAAAAAA's, and Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmms when she wants me, and slobby sweet kisses. It was a great year.


Tenacious is a good word for Sweet Pea, as well as persistent, strong-willed, determined, stubborn and opinionated. She couldn't possibly be my daughter could she?


She is also precious, hysterical, delightful, endearing and sweeter-than-a-bunny. When she turns on her smile she shines so bright, absolutely irresistible. I hope she learns to use this power for good.


My sweet baby, Happy Birthday! I'm excited to see all the new things you'll learn and do in your second year of life. But don't be in too much of a hurry to grow up little girl. I need my snuggly baby.

Happy birthday SP!!!!

Man, I'm getting misty because in a year, this will be my post--except 10 days earlier and with a boy. Why do they have to grow up so damn fast?????
