My baby girl turned one this week. My oh my how the time flies… whether you are ready for it or not and believe me…I am not ready for it. Every day she is growing, changing, developing, learning and becoming a beautiful, special little girl. Yes, little girl. Every day she is losing some of her baby traits and becoming more and more like a toddler. Oh how I relish these days with her and each and every day I’ve had with her this past year.
I came across this quote this week, and it couldn’t have found me at a more perfect time in our lives.
She is such a light. Her personality is shining out more and more each day. She has become such a loving little thing. She loves to give hugs, to be held, to snuggle, to wrap her arms and legs around me at night while she sleeps and to pucker up for kisses. She also loves her dada more and more every day… and I can tell she is growing into a daddy’s girl.
She is so smart. She is signing more and more, learning to use her words and mimicking everything we do. What once started as a slow wobbly unsure walk is now a fast steady near run usually accompanied with a loud yell… as if she is saying, “look out world, here I come!”
