Happy First Birthday, N


Dear #2,

Just one very short year ago (at 8:16am), you joined our family of three and made us a family of four.

The past year has been a blast getting to know you. We love seeing you interact with your sister and the way you both love each other so much.
At 12 months old you:
-get into everything.
-want to walk so badly. You crawl up to us, grab our fingers, and start walking with us in tow.
-push a popcorn car and mail cart really well.
-turn pages in a book when read to.
-love to put toys into cups and other objects.
-love to practice sharing.
-have the most hilarious fake cry, ever.
-love table food.
-still love your bottles (and really like them warm, too).
-have the sweetest disposition.
-give the best hugs and open mouth kisses.
-love to blow kisses.
-love ice cream.
-shake your head “no.”
-wave “bye bye.”
-sign for “more,” “eat,” “milk” and “all done.”
-will say “dada” and even “daddy.”
-have 4 teeth.
-have the best smile I’ve ever seen.
Showing off that fabulous smile.
“Bring on the cake, mommy!”
Yep, you went right for the flowers and never looked back. You totally dug in and loved every minute. You pretty much ate all of the icing off of the top of the cake.
#2, thank you so much for being the precious little girl that you are. We love you so much and can’t wait to see what the next year brings.
Mommy and Daddy
