A year ago today you came into our lives…
And we are all the better for having you with us.
Then you were tiny, helpless, totally dependent upon us.
Now you are “a tall drink of water” (as my Nana used to say) for 12 mos, increasingly trying to be independent, and though you still need our help you are longing to run with your big sisters and tackle your big brothers.
You are so beloved–everyone falls over each other to greet you in the morning and hold you throughout the day (while you want to let them–you’re very verbal if you don’t).
You speed crawl, try to join any conversation, captivate total strangers with your hazel eyes, and have a fan club based on a picture of you sucking your two fingers with a St. Lucy crown on your head.
We can’t wait to get to know you more over your second year, as you gear up to join the Toddler Mischief Squad (and please, stop throwing your brother’s shoes in the toilet when he leaves them in the bathroom!)
Happy 1st Birthday dearest Posey Pie!
(and happy Pi day, too!)
(Yes, I am making her a birthday pie but we will have them tomorrow at her family party)
