Month Twelve: Happy Birthday!

Dear Greta,
You turn one year old today. My how this year has flown by. My little girl is growing up too fast. You are just the light of my life and can't imagine our family without you and your mischievous little grin. One year ago today at precisely 10:49 am you came into this world and made our little family of three into a family of four. Things were crazy in the beginning (as they usually are) but we quickly settled into a routine. Months went by and you grew into a bubbly, happy baby. Things got easier and life returned to normal (or at least a new kind of normal). Now you can move and move you do! You get where ever you need to be and are thrilled with the mobile developments. You are my little miss independent! Oh and you love your older brother. You light up around him and follow his every move, scooting around as fast as you can to keep up with him. I know you can't wait until the day you can run with him. Your father and I absolutely adore you and can't wait to see you turn into an amazing woman. Happy Birthday little one!

Now for the pictures. I have fourteen pictures to share, and that's down from about fifty. So it's a tad picture heavy. It's not every day your little girl turns one. :)

Granny Randi and Papa Rich came all the way from New Mexico, and they shall never leave...I won't let them.

The youngins all posed for this picture right on the giant crack where we had foundation work done. Classy eh?

The rare photo of the elusive ones known as Josh and Jessica. Might be the only picture I have.

The birthday girl with her knitted blanket from Noni. Thanks Mom, you did a beautiful job!

All the youngins got in on the present opening action, even wee Emery.

She's my little doll face.

Family photo time (thanks for taking the pic Jessica)!

Happy smile time with old Mom.

Emery posing for the camera, with Blake's sexy legs in the background...oh la la

The hat lasted about two seconds

Papa Rich and I had a ball watching Greta open her presents and eat her cake. We miss and love you all very much.
