The Babe Turns ONE

Dear Alexa,

I cannot believe it’s been a year already!  My life has changed so much since you came into it.  I’ve learned patience, unconditional love, empathy…all the things everyone tells you…but you just can’t know until (if) you become a mother.

While I still think of you in terms of your due date (April 30th), you are indeed a one year old.  My lovely daughter has been on this planet for 365 days…wow.  You have changed immensely.  When you first graced us with your presence you were a wee 3.5lbs and now you’re rough 18lbs.  Wow, think about that.  Almost 6x’s the size of when you were born.  Crazy!

This year has been tired, amazing, exhausting, blissful…every emotion that exists has been felt (by both of us I’m sure).  We’re finally in sync and I love it.

You are certainly a crowd pleaser.  Everyone comments on how you light up a room with your beautiful, and expressive, face.  You are loved by a huge group of family and close friends.

I love you with all of my heart and can’t wait to get to know you even better.
