ONE...

Our baby girl is a year old today. I feel teary-eyed just writing this. To say that this has been the best year yet, would be such an incredible understatement. She has brought such intense joy to our lives and each new stage with her is better than the last. Watching her point at herself in the mirror and say, "Dallie!" puts a smile on my face every time, and having her wrestle me to the ground and smother my face with kisses, is the highlight of my days.
Every time I look at her, my heart feels so full of love and joy and pride, I often wonder if its going to explode out of my chest. I honestly can't remember what life was like without her and I don't actually care to try. God couldn't have blessed us with anyone better. Happy Birthday to our sweet, lovable, spunky & intensely happy Callie-bear!

They grow up so fast. This next year will amaze you with her speach, walking, actions, etc.
