Happy Birthday Finley (For Real)

Happy 1st Birthday to my baby. Where have the past 365 days gone? When we found out I was pregnant in November of 2010, we were over the moon excited. However, I often wondered if I would ever be able to love you as much as I love your sister. I mean, I love Ella in ways I never thought possible and I questioned if I would have enough love left to give. Like there is a limited supply of it or something. Well, at 6:01 on July 31st, 2010, all my worries went out the window. We loved you immediately and instantly and haven't stopped since. Nothing has been better than watching you grow and change over the past year.

In the beginning, I thought some days would not end and that life would consist of a baby that screamed 24 hours a day. I even googled "what if my baby never stops crying" and thought my life was going to consist of never leaving the house and walking around with my hands over my ears. Luckily, things got better and you became a different baby, literally over night. You are now such a happy, assertive, sensitive, and easy baby. And, you are the sweetest baby ever and your entire face lights up when you smile and your 4 teeth are precious. You love cheese, my keys, your sister and your dogs more than anything. It's so cute to see you get excited over things and watch you clap your hands when something makes you really happy. I love watching you switch between your regular crawl and your 1 foot/1 knee crawl. I love watching you stand up with a look on your face like "what am I supposed to do now?", only to fall back down on your booty.

You are the biggest blessing in my life and I thank God for the past year. And like your daddy says, we can wait for you to grow up. So just don't do it too fast ok? You are loved more than you'll ever know.

If you want depressing results, google that. It's such a downer.
