Dear Lila, (Lila turns 1!!!)

I am so far behind on blogging... almost a full year behind! I always write little letters to the kids on their birthdays, and so no matter how much I slack on keeping up with blogging, that’s one thing I don’t want to forget to do! So let’s transport back in time to December 2019...

My littlest girl with the biggest blue eyes... you remind us of a little doe. We thought a dear themed birthday was fitting, especially right before Christmas! We were heading out of town on your birthday, so we decided to celebrate a few days early with family here at home. It was a sweet little party, and it was so fun to celebrate you! 

You are small, but mighty, the spunkiest gal we know! You are starting to walk and say so many fun words (and as soon as you started walking, you were running). Your first word was cracker, and now you seem to add new words everyday. 

Everyone loves you so much, your brothers especially! They come and get you out of our room in the mornings to feed you breakfast and play with you until mommy gets up! At one, you still love to nurse (calling it mama’s waters), and are still taking two naps a day. Soon you will go down to one nap, and begin to become more of a toddler than a baby so quickly!

You still remind us so much of Milo, and we love how easy it is to make you happy, and how funny you are!

Your first year was such a hard, busy, tiring tear full of changes and challenges, but were so happy that you were here for it all! We love you so much and can’t wait for all the laughs to come!
