Natalie's Day

I am definitely glad that today I am sitting at the computer celebrating my one year old and not at the hospital being told I am "contracting like he--" by the nurse or wanting so badly to just quit pushing as I try give birth to a baby that is over 9 lbs. The past 365 days with Natalie have been so much more than I could have ever asked for. The things I have learned and felt, the way I have loved, the things I have tried to change about myself, the pure joy I have experienced...thank you, Natalie. We love you so much. Happy Birthday.

Oh, I'm dabbing at my eyes this very moment. How dare she grow up without me there? Thank you Jess, for letting us be "there" with your blog and that beautiful video. How can one little person have so many adorable pictures all in just one year! Please give her a big hug and kiss from the Lolly's, who love her more than she will ever know...

I LOVED that! I actually watched all seven minutes of it, which I wouldn't have done if she was any less cute!

I can't believe she is a year old already! What a priceless slide show of her first year! Good job! She is so cute. Hope to meet her in person someday.
