Happy Birthday, Anna!

Sweet Little Anna turns one today. Simply put, we just really enjoy her :) She has added more sweetness, laughter and amazement at God's gifts than we could have imagined. Her love for her family is gentle and innocent. She has an intense love for her sister that we're guessing will grow stronger and stronger.

Things we love about her on her 1st birthday: her throaty laugh, the way her voice sounds (like Blue on Blues Clues), her pretty hair, the way she comes quickly crawling when she hears the dishwasher open, the way she's the messiest eater we've ever known, the way she always sits sideways in her highchair, the way she sways when she hears music, her cuddles in bed in the middle of the night, the way she smiles when we say "no," her gappy teeth, her love for my water bottle, her love of car rides and being out, the way her birthday will seem to usher in the holidays every year, how she tries to put bows in her hair, how she always pulls her socks off, and the way she points at things and makes sounds.

Here's a picture for each month of her life this far. We love you Anna!

Happy Birthday, Darling!!!

The fall picture is adorable. You should frame it in a barn wood type frame and bring it out with your fall decorations each year! I just sent her gift today, Steph. I'm such a loser of an Auntie ;)
