Happy Birthday Baby

My Dearest Liberty,

I can not believe that only one year ago you came into our lives. I was sure when I was pregnant with you that I was going to have a boy. When you were born, I did a true double take and couldn't believe I had another girl.

My labor with you was so difficult. I was not prepared, at all, for you. But I am so grateful for you. I am learning so much about myself and becoming a better Mom, because of you.

Now a little about what you do...

Sing, dance, play the piano -- all three at the same time
Spider crawl, on all 4's
Stand up in the middle of the room by yourself
Cruise around all the furniture
Go up and down the stairs with ease
Have NO teeth
Eat everything we do
Sign and say 'baby'
Say 'bye' and wave
Play with your brother and sister
Say and sign 'Mama and Daddy'
Hate the stroller
Love the Sling and Ergo
Say and sign 'kitty'
Give the biggest kisses and smiles to everyone...
oh and SO much more

You are such a wonderful little girl. If only you'd sleep a little more...but really, it's ok. I am so glad to have you here, to watch you grow and to be my sweet baby girl. You have the sweetest disposition, smile and personality. You will give anyone and everyone smiles, and truly love life. I am just so lucky to be your Mama and get to help you learn and grow.

Happy Birthday baby. I can't wait to see what you become this next year.
