Happy 1st Birthday!!!!


Today is Amelia's first birthday -- I really think this has been the fastest year. It really doesn't seem possible that a year has passed since we drove through the night and then held our baby girl for the first time when she was just hours old. I realize I didn't have to go through labor, but not sleeping for 40 hours is no piece of cake. :) Obviously, she has changed so much in a year but most of all, I cannot even begin to express how much more precious she has become. I truly cannot imagine my life without her and I am in awe of how God has "doubly blessed" us. I feel like there is so much I could share, and I was going to write a long post talking about her, but then I decided that I would instead maybe write her a letter to save for her. Not that I have a problem sharing personal things or my emotions, but I think it would probably end up being rather long. :) But I didn't want the day to end without me mentioning Happy Birthday to her and Happy first day of spring to the rest of you. And if any of you are in the area, here's an invitation to her birthday party next Monday. :)

And here's a picture that I took today of her doing mine and Daddy's new favorite face -- her scrunchy face. She does it when she is being silly or when we are playing something like Peek a Boo with her. She cracks us up everytime - and I do believe she knows how much we enjoy it and how cute she is. :)
