I still remember the day when we first met like it was yesterday. Even though it seems like you have always been a part of our lives. You have brought so much joy to our home. I love hearing you laugh and your sweet babble. There's just something about a baby's voice that melts your heart.
You are such a happy and content baby. Although you are not so much a baby anymore and are growing into an independent little toddler. You love to be as independent as can be. Feeding time takes a bit more thought since you don't like us feeding you with a spoon and you prefer to do it yourself and that usually leads to finding finger food type items.
There was so much that you have accomplished in this first year and I can't wait to see what else will achieve in the years to come.
"Look, I don't want to wax philosophic, but I will say that if you are alive you have got to flap your arms and legs, you've got to jump around a lot, for life is the very opposite of death, and therefore you must at the very least think noisy and colorfully, or you're not alive." ~Mel Brooks
God didn't promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, sun without rain, but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way.
We learn as much from sorrow as from joy, as much from illness as from health, from handicap as from advantage and indeed perhaps more. - Pearl S. Buck
There is no better time than right now to be happy. Happiness is a journey, not a destination. So work like you don't need money. Love like you've never been hurt, and dance like no one's watching.
Love makes each day a joy, and each moment a memory.
"To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did.'When God takes something from your grasp, He's not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better. Concentrate on this sentence . . . 'The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.'
One day at a time is enough...don't look back and grieve the past, it's gone...don't be troubled about the future, it has not come yet...live in the present and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering.
