One year

How did my baby girl get to be a year old already?  

The day you were born, my world was turned upside down.  Your heart was broken, but it was mine that needed to be fixed.

One month old and your brothers and sister couldn't love you more.

Two months old and somehow you managed to make everyone love you even more.

Three months old.  I'm starting to realize that my boys don't like wearing clothes...

After 3 months of pumping, you decided you didn't want a bottle anymore.  So we celebrated by having nursing pictures taken.

Four months old.

Five months old and you went to your first race and slept through it =)

The Dr's fixed your heart for you.

You came out smiling on the other side.

Six months old

Seven months old and you took your first long road trip.  You decided to take a nap on the couch with daddy when we got there.

Eight months and you got to try avocados.

Nine months and you finally sat by yourself.

Ten months and already the perfect little model.

Eleven months and you decided it was time to sit in the cart seat.  And you cut your first two (bottom) teeth.

Twelve months, one year...  Oh how our lives have changed.  

At times it seems like a year isn't that significant, but this last year has brought so many changes.  Not only in the size of our family, but in our hearts and our attitudes towards others.
