I actually wrote this awhile ago and scheduled it but it never posted! So here it is!
This summer, during our extended transition to Wilmington, we were between homes for about 6 weeks. Remy grew up SO much: she got two teeth, quit nursing, started walking, and turned ONE!
It’s hard to believe that you’re getting so big and independent. It’s so easy to picture us in the hospital when you were born, discovering your teeny elf ears and how very, very loud you can be! I love your big blue eyes and long lashes, your crazy hair, and your big smile.
That’s you with Daddy on your birthday eve! #facetwins
That’s you on the morning of your birthday – our big one-year-old!
I love how you hug – you’re such a cuddler! You wrap both your arms around our necks and squeeeeze, and press your face against ours. I LOVE it! You love to be held and carried and snuggled.
I love your love for food, and drinking water, and how you point and flap and squawk and clearly tell us what you want. I love how you notice EVERYthing and try to do it all yourself: putting on clothes, using your spoon, wiping the floors, putting lids on containers, and vacuuming.
Sorry your first cupcake was store-bought. We’re glad you liked it. :o)
I love that you are so busy that you barely have time for books, and that they Must Have flaps, or things to feel, to engage you. You know I like them, though, so you faithfully bring me some to look at!
We had cupcakes at Grandma and Grandpa’s house!
I love how much you love to sleep! (No, really. I LOVE THAT.) You know when it’s nap time and you go up the steps of our new house as fast as you can. You sleep with your blanket and your bunny, and you gather it all in your arms and hold it tight. You’re usually smiling when we leave the room!
Your delight in each day brings us such delight, too. It’s such a joy to be your mom! I can’t imagine our days without you in them. We’re praying that God will continue to give you joy and hope as you learn to trust in him, and that you’ll understand and rely on his ceaseless, steadfast love, mercy, and faithfulness. We love you so much!
