Happy Birthday Avery!!

I can't believe the day is finally here! You are a one year old today! I have thought of  this day for a while now and can't believe it's here... sniff, sniff. Happy birthday sweet girl! One year ago today mine and your daddy's life changed forever. This past year has been the sweetest one of my life. You are such a joy and watching you grow has been a blessing. I can't believe how time passes so quickly; I will cherish so many memories of your first year in my heart. You are changing with the blink of an eye! You are really starting to turn into a little toddler now. Pulling up, cruising, walking every where with your walker and standing, but still a little afraid to take that first step on your own. You are very active and never ever sit still! You have quite the appetite, despite being so tiny, you love every thing we eat so that makes it easy for mommy. Your favorites are spaghetti, grilled chicken, green beans, carrots, and bananas. You can communicate with us more now also. You sign for milk when you want it and you sign "all done" when you're full. Your adorable little grin now has 7 seven teeth.  You love to be held, but also love to be independent and get into and explore everything. You will play in your play room for hours while I sit and watch you. Oh how I love to sit and watch you play and talk to your toys and read books to yourself.  You are such an easy baby; you love to run errands with mommy, go shopping, go out to eat, car trips and meet new people.  We love you to pieces! I can't imagine my life without you in it. One year of loving you has flown by and I can't wait to watch you grow into a beautiful and godly little lady. Just slow it down some so I can keep you my baby for longer. :)
Happy one year! I love you to the moon and back.
Love, momma

Thanks for your comment! I love that bedding! I was sad because right after I bought it they put it on sale. Isn't that how it always goes though!

Your little Avery is darling, I remember seeing you with her at Homecoming and I can't believe it's been a year. I can't wait to watch our little girl grow up!
