a dozen months

A dozen months.  Twelve whole months.  365 days {well, actually 366 days since it was leap year}.  52 weeks.  A year.

A year!  Yikes!

Happy 1st Birthday, my Sweet Petite!  Today is all about you.  We celebrate you.  And all the love and joy and happiness that you have given us this past year.

Your personality is super bright.  You talk a mile a minute and say a couple simple sentences. 

'I get down'
'Hey DaDa'

You prefer to walk.  When we get to school in the mornings, you say, 'I get down', and you walk to your class.  Of course, we have to stop and look everything on the way. And you have to speak to Benjamin the Bunny {or puppy, as you call him}. 

You are down to two bottles a day.  One in the morning and one at night.  You drink milk and water from a sippy cup the rest of the day.  You still are a great eater.  Recently, you had ravioli for the first time and you loved it.  You painted yourself with the sauce!  It was a mess, but your smile was well worth the clean up.

You have cut one back tooth and you are working on three more teeth all at the same time.  You still love to brush your teeth.

You are wearing 12-18 month clothes, a size 4 diaper and size 3 shoe.  You are getting to be such a big girl {but you are still mama's baby!}.

Your favorite thing to do is splash in the bath and blow bubbles outside.  You love bubbles! 

Your vocabulary consists of bubbles, ball, puppy, Papa, DaDa, Bubby, baba {bottle}, cacker {which stands for call food, not just crackers}, happy, bye-bye, hey, Mama, cup, go.

You have started to enjoy prayer time before meals.  You like to hold hands with me and Daddy and you stay so still and quiet while we bless the food.

Harper, you are such a delight.  You bring so much joy to me and Daddy.  This past year has been the best of my life, hands down.  You are a gift!  A precious, precious gift from God.  And I treasure each and every moment that I get to be your Mommy. 

Happy 1st Birthday, our angel!  We love you to Heaven and back!
