It's a magical thing the first year of life.  So much happens in such a short amount of time.  You started out so fragile and little.  I couldn't believe my eyes when I first held you because of the miracle it all was.
 And of course you had a lot of fighting to do before you could even be home with us.

As hard as those first weeks were, they were spiritually special and something that I won't forget.  It opened my mind, and heart to a lot of things that I couldn't have known any other way.  You continue to teach me things as you grown and learn about life.  Daddy and I will always be your biggest supporter and love you through all the ups and downs of life.  You are our special miracle in every way, and we know God has a purpose and a plan for you!  We LOVE you baby girl!!!

Even though you're our biggest baby (weighing in at 17 lbs, which puts you in the 20%), we can still fit you inside a tiny locker.  You can thank daddy for this.

Sitting and rolling like crazy, but no crawling or walking.  You pulled yourself up in the crib for the first time the other day so that's big news.
