My First Year

My First Year

I entered the world on the 2nd of September
One week early, 8 pounds 3 ounces, a day my parents will always remember.

Those first few months I didn't do much at all
My parents were told, “Enjoy this time while she is small.”

Once I discovered I could scoot around by my own might,
It’s been non-stop action morning ‘till night.

At 10 months, my first tooth finally broke through,
And it did not put me in a good mood.

In June, I took off crawling across the floor,
With in a few weeks I was pulling up and finally off all fours.

The first time I tried putting one foot in front of the other,
I was 10 1/2 months old, and I walked to my mother.

I practiced walking all day and into the night,
And by August I had at last got it right!

“Mom-mom”, “Daddy”, "Barba" "Pa" & “Gid” are words I now can say,
But “Mom-mom” is what you will hear most of the day.

As you can see I’ve had a busy year
Hard to believe my 1st birthday is already here.

Happy Birthday, my sweet baby girl.

So I know this post is early, but I wanted to be able to do it when I had time before your weekend events started.

To My Sweet Silverbell -

You turn one in 3 days and I cannot explain the joy you have brought to my/our lives. When I first found out you were a girl, I had every emotion go through me, I was scared, nervous, excited and worried. I had experience raising boys and had felt like I had succeeded, but a girl, what was I going to do a with a girl.

And then you arrived. The moment I laid my eyes on you, I fell in love. You were my "pretty girl". This past year you have melted my heart in ways I could not even imagine. Your sweetness makes my heart grow everyday and your cuteness makes me smile. I cannot imagine my life without you. You make our family perfect.

I have so many hopes and dreams for you and I look forward to sharing every moment of them with you.

Happy Birthday!

My pretty girl and handsome boy!

Thanks to a our friend Matthew for the wonderful pictures of our children. He truly captured their sweetness and cuteness.
