Anna Is The Big One

One year ago today, we welcomed this little gift to our family.

She was a tiny little precious person. She was also quite loud and she wasn't at all afraid to let us know when her needs were not being met to her satisfaction.

As time went by though she became this wonderful little person who is so full of life. Don't get me wrong, she is still very opinionated about the way things should be. She is not all all afraid to voice her opinions. But in between those times, she is a joy to be around.

She is my little climber.

She is always sweet and affectionate.

Sometimes she even wishes she had listened to her mother who told her not to put that in her mouth.

On her first birthday, I think back over the year we have been blessed to have with her. This year she has come so far. It is hard to believe that little baby we brought home from the hospital is the same one who is playing at my feet as I write this. I can't wait to see what the future holds for my little girl.

Happy Birthday Anna!! I love you so.

In a day or two I will post a video showing her ever expanding vocabulary. She isn't feeling very cooperative today.
