Our little girl

A year ago, you came into our world, making it a better place. I remember being in the car on the way to the hospital filled with anticipation and happiness. The world seemed to be blanketed with a cool calmness. In a way, everything about that morning describes you.

We adore you. Love Mommy, Daddy and your big sister... xoxo

Now, I've seen some beautiful babies. Heck, I've *made* some beautiful babies. ;) But honestly, she is just gorgeous. Such an expressive face and the sweetest smile! And those eyes! Man...that slideshow was awesome. I watched it with tears in my eyes. I LOVE the picture of her in the pumpkin, and the one of the two of them sleeping? Precious. Just precious.

Bri said...

Happy birthday to your sweet little girl in a pumpkin shell! (why doesn't everyone put their children in emptied out pumpkins? So so cute!)

Nancy said...

What great pictures! Happy Birthday to Buttercup!

Mother Bumper said...

Jana! I'm sitting here typing as Bumper sleeps on and on for her afternoon nap (started just after 1 - ahhh!). And I'm fretting and sad because we aren't going to make it to Buttercups first birthday this afternoon. A huge apology and I didn't know your email, so please forgive our missing this special party. Sorry (I feel so bad and sad).

OMG so cute - lookit that little rosebud of a mouth!

I am echoing mothebumper's sentiments above - I hate missing your party, but Pumpkinpie has a fever so I think we'll have to stay here for our splashing. (Also son't want to passs on any nasties that might be behind it.)

I hope BUttercup has a great birthday!

chelle said...

Pattie the Domesticator said...

Oh, I love the pics, and the creative way you chose to share them. My favorite is the one in the pumpkin.....

something blue said...

Thanks everyone for the well wishes!

Nonlineargirl - I've been asking myself that for years! Also why do people keep threatening to call child services due to my fondness for placing our girls in vegetables?
