Well, what a year it has been. My precious baby girl is one year old. I can't believe it. If every year goes this fast, she will be off to college in no time. It makes me so sad to think about it. She blesses me every day with more joy then I could ever have imagined before she came into my life. I wanted to take this opportunity to document some of her tricks and favorite things.
She is taking a few steps here and there, has been "cruising" for months...but still hasn't taken off. She loves to flex her muscles and blow kisses. She smiles at anyone and everyone and will fake laugh when anyone else laughs. She barks like the dogs next door. Her favorite words are Mama, Dada, Hi, Bye Bye, Uh Oh, Thank you, Purple, Bubble, and "No Meg, No Meg, No Meg". She gives the sweetest neck squeeze hugs. She plays with my hair when she is sleepy. If she can't reach my hair...she plays with her own. She pulls my hair and say "ouch". She will eat anything she finds on the ground....including a roly poly in the house the other day. She loves little gym and her best friends Merrick and Olivia. She can't sit still for even a second. She absolutely loves swimming. Her favorite game is pulling all of her clothes out of her drawer or all of the movies out of the shelves.
Those beautiful blue eyes and luscious little lips melt my heart over and over every day. My favorite book to read to her is "I Love You So Much". I love the line that says "I can't imagine life before you came along...Me there singing senseless, no meaning to my song." I truly can't imagine what life was like a year ago. I know it was not complete.
"Lord, lead us in raising this precious child in your ways. Thank you for intrusting us with her life. Protect her daily, despite our mistakes. Bless her and use her always for your glory and the growth of your kingdom"
It is a crazy weekend. Our Nephew's party was this morning and we have a wedding tonight. I will post pictures of Meg's party when I get a chance. It is tomorrow.
