HAPPY BIRTHDAY HALLE KAY!

SO, YOUR 1ST BIRTHDAY IS FASTLY APPROACHING AND WILL BE HERE IN 2 DAYS. WOW! WHERE HAS THE LAST YEAR GONE. I HAVE THOUGHT ABOUT YOU AND YOUR BIRTH ALOT TODAY SINCE IT WAS THIS THURSDAY YOU WERE BORN LAST YEAR NOT THE RIGHT DATE, BUT ON THIS DAY. REMINISCING JUST KEEPS HAPPENING TODAY IF I AM NOT EVEN DOING IT ON PURPOSE. I REMEMBER FINDING OUT WHEN I WAS FIRST PREGNANT-I WAS SO SCARED. I FELT TRULY EVERY EMOTION POSSIBLE. THROUGHOUT MY PREGNANCY I WAS VERY SCARED TO DELIVER AND THAT STAYED ON MY MIND ALOT. AND NOW, YOU ARE HERE AND HAVE BEEN FOR QUITE AWHILE AND YOUR FATHER AND I GET TO ENJOY YOUR PRESENCE DAILY. YOU HAVE TRULY MADE US THE HAPPIEST PARENTS IN THE WHOLE WORLD! WE LOVE YOU SO MUCH, AND WE NEVER THOUGHT THAT EITHER OF US WERE CAPABLE OF THIS KIND OF LOVE...IT IS SO DEEP! YOU TRULY MAKE US LAUGH, CRY, SMILE, GET FRUSTRATED, YOU NAME IT. IT IS SO WORTH IT. YOU HAVE STARTED TRYING TO WALK ON YOUR OWN-THIS IS FUN TO WATCH BUT HARD BECAUSE YOU ARE ALWAYS MOVING AND ON THE GO, HOWEVER; WE WOULD HAVE IT NO OTHER WAY.
WE LOOK BACK AT WHEN YOU FIRST JOINED OUR LITTLE FAMILY...WE DIDN'T KNOW HOW TO CHANGE A DIAPER, MAKE A COLD GO AWAY, CALM YOU DOWN AT NIGHT, GIVE YOU A BATH, YOU NAME IT. NOW, I BELIEVE THAT WE HAVE COME QUITE A WAYS IN THE PARENTING DEPARTMENT. AND YOU, WHEN YOU GOT HERE, YOU WERE QUITE HELPLESS-LIKE ALL BABIES. AND NOW, YOU MOVE, TALK( YOU THINK YOU ARE SAYING REAL WORDS), CRAWL, STAND, EAT, GET MAD, LAUGH UNCONTROLLABLY, ENTERTAIN YOURSELF...YOU DO SO MUCH. AFTER LOOKING AT THE PROGRESS WE HAVE ALL MADE IT DOES SEEM LIKE YOU JOINED US A YEAR AGO-ANY OTHER WAY, IT FEELS LIKE YOU WERE BORN YESTERDAY.
YOUR FATHER AND I OFTEN ASK OURSELVES WHAT WE DID BEFORE WE HAD YOU. YOU ARE SIMPLY OUR LIFE NOW. WHEN YOU ARE SICK-WE WISH IT WAS US, WHEN YOU ARE HURT OR MAD-WE WISH IT WAS US, WHEN YOUR TIRED-WE BETTER FIND SOMETHING TO DO WHILE YOU NAP. YOU NAME IT-KIDS CHANGE YOUR LIFE ENTIRELY BUT IT IS FOR THE BEST. YOU TRULY HAVE BLESSED OUR LIVES IN SO MANY WAYS AND WE LOVE YOU SO MUCH.
EVEN THOUGH YOU ARE GROWING FAST, IT IS STILL NICE THAT WE CAN CUDDLE AND THAT YOU STILL NEED US FOR SOME THINGS BECAUSE WE BOTH LIKE FEELING NEEDED BY YOU, AND HOPE THAT NEVER CHANGES.
AS YOUR BIRTHDAY IS COMING, WE HOPE IT IS WONDERFUL. YOU PROBABLY WON'T REMEMBER ALOT SO WE WILL TAKE PICTURES. JUST KNOW, YOUR FATHER AND I ARE PROUD OF YOU FOR ALL YOU ACCOMPLISH AND YOU TRULY MAKE EACH AND EVERYDAY WORTH WHILE.
WE LOVE YOU HALLE KAY! HAPPY 1ST BIRTHDAY!
LOVE, MOMMY AND DADDY

That is so sweet. What a milestone! It is such a fun thing to celebrate - you're right, it's more fun for mommy at this age then the babe! Hope her big day is great!
