ME at ONE....

In honor of my baby girl turning ONE, I got some old photos from my mom of me turning one. Here they are.. She is definitely my baby girl. :)

And yes, they apparently potty trained at 12 months back then- CRAZY....

So, what do you do when you are home bound, with the stomach bug flying around and you are tired of being inside doing the same ol' stuff while the rest of the world is enjoying the pretty weather outside?? You discover Photo booth on your computer and your kids can't get enough of it. So, you keep taking picture after picture until you realize you have taken WAY more than a regular photo booth would take.

Took Miss Hadley for her one year well check today..

18 lbs. 3 oz. (5%)
27.5 inches long (5%)
18 inch head (75%)

So, what does this mean?? Well, she weighs exactly ONE pound LESS than Ellie did at one year and is 1.5 inches shorter than Ellie was.... We used to think Ellie was small but Hadley is redefining our definition of small. I sure hope she grows some during the next few months because I have a really cute wardrobe of matching winter clothes for the girls that I purchased ahead of time. I bought Hadley 18-24 months...looks like it will most likely not fit. Wahhhhh....
But, once again it will be fun to have a cute little petite princess...

How She Spent Her Big Day

Hadley had a fun first birthday. When we heard her wake up the kids and I went in singing to her. She was so smiley. Then the kids got in her crib for a few birthday hugs and kisses. After getting the kids to school and taking a nap, we went to meet Daddy for lunch by his office. We went to La Madeline and ironically enough the number they gave us on our spoon was ONE. We then cruised around Market Street until it was time to go get Gav and Ellie from school. After her afternoon nap we had our family come over for fajita's and cake. Hadley was really excited to have everyone over. Then after everyone left I read her a book, nursed her and had a little conversation with her about how much she means to me, how much I love her, and gave her a goodnight kiss. What a great day our little birthday girl had. Great memories from today. I am still trying to wrap my mind around the fact that she is ONE. My baby is ONE. Wow.
One Year

Happy First Birthday Hadley Faith. It is hard to believe that a year ago today we held you in our arms for the first time and met our little miracle. Beyond your story in the beginning of our pregnancy you proved to be a miracle again as soon as you came into this world. Your cord was wrapped around your neck and criss-crossed around your body. I remember my doctor saying you had a Guardian Angel watching over you and I knew once again God had big plans for you. You add so much love to our family and bring all of us so much joy. We can not imagine life without you. You fit perfectly into our crazy little family and made us a family of five. My heart tripled in size when I first held you and the love I have for you really is indescribable. Thank you for being such a fun, sweet, easy going little girl.
We love you with all of our hearts!
Happy First Birthday Little Mommal!
