ONE big celebration


We celebrated the big 1 this week.
We celebrated the best year of our lives.
We celebrated our loving friends and family who have helped us tremendously this past year.
We celebrated the words dog, mama, dada, and even the very seldom word bird.
We celebrated scooting and refusing to crawl like the other babies.
We celebrated eating everything in sight.
We celebrated giving high fives and kisses to everyone she meets (even pictures on the wall)!
We celebrated five teeth and messy hair.
We celebrated the most joy we have ever felt.
We celebrated Elle.

Oh happy birthday Elle! Has it really been a year???
Her party hat is darling, but that face is the cutest thing I have EVER seen. Big brown eyes!

I can't even stand how beautiful Elle is. WOW, a year!!! Remember she is still considered an infant until she is 2. I love that she is talking, we need to get her around Asher so maybe he'll pick up a few words.

By the by Elle is very lucky to have you as a Mom. You do such a great job making people feel special and you ooze love for your family.

Could she be any more beautiful? I love her! I love her messy hair, and her screams of "dog" in the background while we're on the phone. She is an absolute delight. I love her and crave her. I wish I could see her every single day!

Happy 1st Birthday Elle Peanut!
