My Dear Aubrey Rose,

Wednesday you turned ONE!
One, as in:
  • 12 months
  • 52 weeks
  • 365 days
  • 8,765.81 hours
  • 525,949 minutes
Sheesh! Yesterday was such a mixture of emotions. They ranged somewhere between happy and sad all day long. I was fine at work, bragging to my customers that it was my daughter's birthday. And I could not wait to get home to you. But as soon as I turned the corner and pulled into the drive way I couldn't stop the tears.

Anyway, your party is still about a couple of weeks away but we went ahead and got you a cupcake. You LOVED it!

  • Still have four teeth! I could have sworn that you would have more but Mama was wrong!
  • You have taken three steps on your own to date and you looked ever so cute doing it
  • You can say "hi"
  • I swear you can say "I love you"
  • You love playing with the phone. You often pick it up and say "hi!"
  • You love music
  • You LOVE Yo Gabba Gabba and the Backyardigans
  • You give the best hugs, hands down.
  • You love taking things out and putting them back again. 
  • You are not too picky of an eater, except for green beans!
Oh my girl, I love you so much!

I cannot believe that a year has passed. I have learned so much about life and love, most of which I thought I already knew. 

No one every told me I could love so much, so relentlessly. You are my heart and my soul and I wouldn't trade a single second for anything in this world. 

I am so excited for your birthday party! Get ready, my Bird; you are about to be showered with so much love.

I love you more than a million gummi bears.

Love always,
