Happy Birthday Tenacious A!


You are one today!!


It's so hard for me to believe that you are already one. It seems like I was just preparing myself for your arrival only months ago but at the same time, you are such a big part of our family that it seems like you've always been around.


Your once laid back personality has been replaced by an intense curiosity for life that keeps you constantly on the go! I love the fire in your spirit and I'm so excited to watch it grow.



It's amazing how much you've changed and grown in a year! And even though I get sad sometimes at how fast this year with you has gone and how you are no longer my little baby, I am in love with the little thing you are today and I'm so excited to watch you grow into the person God created you to be.


Happy birthday to my sweet, tenacious A. You are so very, very loved.

Oh, and thank you auntie for taking letting us play with your chicks and for taking her one-year pictures!

And that super cute banner was a custom order made by CMHandmade!
