Happy Birthday! You are ONE today and you don't even know it!! Or do you? Do you remember some memories we made this past year?
Oh...this one is pretty important. Do you remember your birthday in the hospital? Our first cuddle time together. I had no idea that even at 1, you would still be as much of a cuddler as you were the day you were born. You are absolutely my cuddle bug.
Do you remember when I dressed you up as a giraffe for Halloween, but put a bow in your "ear" so everyone knew you were a girl giraffe? I know- I didn't even let you have any candy, but maybe next year when you have all of your teeth.
Do you remember all of the tummy time/floor time/playtime that we spent together? Our living room floor has been your play world this past year and you have spent hours working on the baby fundamentals.
Do you remember when you desperately wanted to be big like your cousin Harper, so that you could run around instead of crawl?
Do you remember when I could put accessories all over your face and on your head and you didn't seem to mind? It was short lived and wonderful.
Do you remember all the yummy treats that you tried for the first time, normally at your Great-Grandma's house? You had your first experience with chocolate pudding in this picture, and you were looking at grandma for just one more bite.
Do you remember some of your first trips, like the 4-H Fair? We also took trips to the Children's Museum, the zoo, the State Museum, and lots of fall festivals and craft fairs, of course!
