Happy Birthday Sweet B!
Hard to believe a year has already passed with this little one. And yet I have truly felt every day of the past 365. The days are incredibly slow but the years go quickly someone told me once. So true.
Sweet B has been a challenge for us in many ways. She was a spitter. Remember this?? She wouldn't touch a bottle until she was 4.5 months old. She has been an early riser from the get go. She sleeps fitfully and teething has been a bear to endure with her. She HATES being alone. She wants to be held (preferably by mom) 24/7. Generally speaking if she's in her car seat she's screaming at the top of her lungs.
But when you put her in any kind of childcare the report is always the same, "she's so sweet!" or "We just love her!" so she clearly has a few endearing qualities as well...
She has an infectious giggle. When she smiles I think my heart will break. By the grace of God she's walking already. (I can't imagine carrying around a 16 month old when I'm 9 months pregnant.) She learned to communicate much earlier than the Squirt. She gives kisses and high fives and waves buh by to Da Da. When she and the Squirt actually play together I feel every bit as privileged as I am to stay at home and watch them grow up together.
We celebrated her first year with us this past Saturday with our families. Since it was the SEC Championship game that day for Georgia I decided to just go with it and we had tailgate food, a football cake and gave out footballs to my nieces as party favors.
Happy Birthday Sweet B! We love you.
