My darling baby girl,

At one year old and three days..........

I love how enthusiastic you are about eating anything and everything we put in front of you.

I love how I can always count on you to enjoy chowing down on all your fruits and vegetables.

I love when you pet the puppies so nice and gentle like we've taught you.

(But lets be honest - they love you because of all the food you drop for them.)

I love how when you drop the food for them you look at me with surprise on your face.

"Oh my goodness Mom!  How did that food get out off my hand and onto the floor!  Whoops!"

And then I love the giggle that follows because you know exactly what you were doing.

I love how smart you are..........even though it scares me a bit - what will you think of next?!

I love how even though your words are limited you have a wide range of faces that express what you are feeling quite clearly.

I love your mean monkey face - eyebrows furrowed and lips puckered out - that you get when you're frustrated.

But that doesn't mean that it's going to get you what you want.

There are lots of things that I love about you - this list is just what I've come up with in the twenty minutes it took you to eat lunch.

Love, Momma

And I love this post! Gosh, at odd moments, I wish I wasn't quite such an emotional Italian/Cajun lady. Tears come easily, but not sad or angry ones, just tender ones.
