perfect in every way
That was my Bel yesterday at her 1 year checkup.
How did we get here so fast? I swear we just got home from the hospital.
Now she's a walking, talking, laughing little person with definite opinions.
Her vocabulary, brief but effective:
Agah (for Otto)
Adah (for Daddy)
Ask her a question and she'll either shake her head no or nod yes.
She has her Daddy's eyes, my cheeks, her brother's sense of humor.
She's sensitive, especially right now while her separation anxiety and stranger-danger stages are peaking.
She loves carbs, especially cupcakes and muffins, which she dismantles with glee.
She loves to play outside, and is already sporting a light farmer's tan. (Must bump up the SPF.)
She is a mama's girl, and I'm soaking up every minute. I know they won't last. Look how fast the last 53 weeks, 4 days have gone!
Happy First Birthday, Annabel! We love being your family!
