One Year

Dearest Emeline,

At 7:30 pm on August 3, 2009, my water broke. I knew my life was about to change forever.

I had just eaten Mexican and was in the parking lot getting ready to drive down to the hospital to be induced.

Oh well.

After you pooping in me, me getting a fever, and 21 hours of labor (that will be used against you in the teenage years), at 5:07 pm, you were born.

All 8 pounds, 1 ounce of you. It was the best day of our lives to date.

Here you are looking like a little old man. One month.

Getting more of a personality. Two months.
Your first smile!! Three months.

Holiday time. Your hair was thinning out. Four months.

Getting to be more precious! Five months.

Half a year old! I love this picture! Adorable at seven months! Look at that bow!

Starting to not tolerate the posed monthly photos. Eight months.

All trouble now. Nine months. Practically into everything. Or so I thought. :D

Oh Lordy, you've started walking. Life just changed. Ten months.

And, we're off. No longer can we do crib photos. Eleven months.

The day before your first birthday party. FeFe got you this stroller and you love it! You are wearing your bath robe!

Rocking Scarlet's tutu-it's a size 3-6 month. You are not that small!

Birthday party day!!! Wearing the cupcake smocked dress from Nonnie. Adorable baby girl!

Ummm, mommy, me no likey hats of any kind!!!

I cannot believe you are a year old today sweet angel! You make us so happy! Our life feels so different, but we cannot imagine life without you! I hope you know how loved you are!
I love you so much sweetie!!!
EDITED: Wha the what is up with this layout? I've been having issues with blogger pics-any ideas??? It's ugly and annoying!
