One Beautiful Year

This has been the most beautiful year of my life. One year ago today, we welcomed our Maggie into the world! She is so amazing - it's so hard to put all these feelings into words, but I think I should direct them to the source...

Dear Maggie,

One year ago today, you brought a joy into our lives that we never knew existed. You warmed our hearts, opened our eyes, and tucked yourself into our little family so perfectly. We've watched you grow month by month, and have marveled at how strong and determined you are. We watch you ponder the world around you, watch you reach out for those that we love so much, and see you learn new things with ease. We marvel at you daily - delight in your giggles, remark on your goings on, and praise your best friend PJ for being by your side every step of the way. You are such a ham - always trying to get us to laugh at you!  And you are an observer - watching and thinking, learning, and deciding what to do next. Your laugh is so amazing - full of pure joy and free of any worry or fear.

Thank you for a year of unforgettable memories! Thank you for reminding your Dad and I every day how lucky we are to have each other. We are so proud of you're first year - we did it! We are also so thankful for all of the family and friends who have supported you from the first breath you took. Our love will find you wherever you go, Maggie.

Love forever and always,
Mommy & Daddy

And she's off!
 We can't wait to for the adventures of year 2!
