Happy First Birthday, Sweet Baby

Happy Birthday Abby. Yesterday, ONE year ago, you were brought into this world, and our lives have never been the same. You are just as precious as you were then. We love you more and more each day. You amaze us with your little personality, smiles, kisses, expressions, and more. You were born pretty small - at only 6lbs. 7oz. You're still not too big either - 19lbs. 7 oz. But you have a big heart. I hope you stay as sweet and smart and beautiful as you are now. You are Mommy's baby girl, and the apple of your Daddy's eye - you light up our lives and we wouldn't give you up for anything. We love you so much! Love, Mommy and Daddy.

Yesterday we had a birthday party for the birthday girl. We still can't believe she's already ONE! Ben was in Alaska from the 10th of November, and just got back home on Friday, the 16th. Abby decided to wait until then to take her first steps!!! She still, at ONE, has only her two bottom front teeth. We are finishing up on her last can of formula (I am not wasting that 25$ a can stinky stuff) - before we start her on whole milk. I guess we are pretty lucky because she nursed so well for 7 months - we saved a lot of money that way. She was very good about digging into her cake yesterday. She definately wasn't shy about it. The icing, for some reason, broke her face out where she had it all over it. Flavored pedialyte and generic gas drops used to the same thing - go figure.?? She got lots of good toys and tons of clothes too. (Starting to wonder where it's all going to go?). I was so worried about her being so shy with everyone around - but she did so good, considering our "house full" - and I mean that literally. There was standing room only, and that included in the hall way, outside, and the kitchen! Here's a picture from when she was first born, and then maybe I'll try to post a few from throughout the years so you can see how much she's grown..then I'll post some from yesterday. Hope you enjoy!

Here she is at only a day old - how sweet.

And here we all are - at Christmas - which she was 6 weeks old.

Here's Abby at 6 months old

Abby's party was "ladybug" themed - so I can say, Our little baby is becoming a little lady - bug...hehe...

Cake, Anyone? (She actually did feed anyone who asked for "a bite"). So sweet.

We love you, ABBY!!!!
