Today we celebrated our sweet baby girl as she turned one year old.  photo IMG_1183-3_zps0485a23a.jpg

It was a beautiful day. A full day of fun and activity. Of course, I spent a great deal of time reflecting on the events of one year ago. When Mike and I kissed Will goodbye on that rainy Monday morning, walked into the hospital, and our lives were forever changed.  photo IMG_1198_zps7ca9ff97.jpg

We are so incredibly lucky to have this little girl. She is more than I ever could've imagined.  photo IMG_1212_zpsfd42d736.jpg

She waves 'hi' and 'bye.'  She blows kisses and gives high fives.  She points and says 'dat!' when something interests her.  She knows Will by name and turns to look at him when I ask, "Where's Will?"  She loves her babies, making music, reading books, and walking EVERYWHERE.  She's feisty and has quite a large personality.

And, while I may be biased, I think she is the cutest baby girl to ever exist.

Happy, happy birthday to our Amelia Jane!  We love you!
